Overview

Pau Pua and the Watering Hole is a beautifully illustrated 'picture book' for cultures and all ages. It is the story of a young native boy who lives with his grandparents and journeys through an enchanted forest with his grandfather to a Spirit Gathering. Young Pau Pua finds himself sleeping under a Great Spirit Tree where he is visited by spirit-animals in the night. Dream Weaver appears in the wee early morning hours, and Pau Pua sees himself in dream-time calling the spirit-animals. They gather before him at a brown watering hole in vivid primitive colors to speak about why their number are dwindling and why many of their kind no longer come to the watering hole, or swim in the rivers. A brown spotted spirit owl appears on a branch before the spirit of Pau Pua and hoots on owl spirit tongue: Pauu Puaaa. . . " You have an important voice, for now you have the gift of spirit vision.
When he awakens in amazement, his grandfather is smiling that knowing smile. He presents Pau Pua with two gifts--one is a new name, "Clear Waters". Grandfather declares: "I am already very proud of you grandson, for you understand that all of life is sacred and that Earth is a sacred place. Suddenly, magic is in the air--- the sun lights up Spirit Tree; the winds begin to blow, and yellow birds in the Tree top begin to sing. An early morning rosy sun lights up the grass and there is a magical dew-drop-dance. Pau Pua discovers that the dew droplets can blink and change to all colors of the rainbow. His wounds (undefined) feel better already.
The closer Pau Pua looks the more beauty he will find. He thinks of how to use the paints his Grandmother taught him to grind, to ask the wounds in his heart what he should do with them. Little does Pau Pua know that one day he will become the keeper of the myths for the creatures of the forest and the sacred mountain. His wondrous journey and life-quest has just begun. He will find the Beauty, and be a voice for the Creatures of the Earth to help keep World Earth a sacred, beautiful place--for All of Life.
