ʻŌiwi used a calendar based upon the phases of the moon. The days look similar, but the nights changed appearance as the nights continued. Made up of twelve months of 29.5 phases, each month started with the new moon, Hilo and ended with Mauli or Muku, the dark moons. Generally, ‘ole moons aren’t good for planting or fishing; ‘ole means without or lacking, thus these were days for rest or to clean. The full moons are good days to plant from Hua to Māhealani. Kū moons are considered good for planting. Lā‘au is a general name for plants, so lā‘au moons are also good days for replanting and harvesting.
