Hawaiian and Polynesian Style

tiki pumpkinTikis are generally large wood and stone carvings that resemble people. In Hawaiian history, the first (tiki) man was Kumuhonua. He was created by Tane from mixing red earth with saliva. The first woman was from one of his ribs. The purpose of the carvings can vary but often they serve as markers to boundaries of sacred sites or property and other significant sites. The word "tiki" originated with the New Zealand maori but is known in many other cultures with slight variations. In Tahiti the word is known as the "ti'i" and in Hawaii it's "ki'i".

Tropical Tikis

 

These tiki printables can be used to make cool paper maché masks, table setting place mats, coasters, wall hangings and ornaments. Trace designs onto Shrink Art paper to make pins, necklaces and brooches for the kids to wear. Print and trace the designs onto multi-color fun craft foam sheets to create colorful soft face masks. Save the left over trimmings to paste interesting and unique designs and shapes onto the finished product.

Printable tropical island theme totem symbols images are adapted from existing, historical photos of Hawaiian Island and Polynesian tiki statues and faces.
