In Polynesian mythology (specifically: Hawaii), Kamohoalii is a shark god and a son of Haumea and Kane Milohai.

Kamohoali swam in the area around Maui and Kahoolawe. When a ship was lost at sea, Kamohoali shook his tail in front of the fleet and the kahuna would feed him "awa" (a name for kava, a narcotic drink), and Kamohoali would guide the men home.
