In Hawaiian mythology, Kāne-milo-hai is the brother of Kamohoaliʻi, Pele, Kapo, Nāmaka and Hiʻiaka (among others) by Haumea.
He is a figure most prominently in the story of Pele's journey along the island chain to Hawaiʻi, and may be seen as a terrestrial counterpart to his brother, the shark-god Kamohoaliokinai.
The word kāne alone means "man", and Kāne is one of the four major Hawaiian deities along with Kanaloa, Kū, and Lono. As a result, Kāne-milo-hai is occasionally confused with the latter.
