In Hawaiian mythology, Kāne-milo-hai is the brother of Kamohoaliʻi, Pele, Kapo, Nāmaka and Hiʻiaka (among others) by Haumea.

He is a minor figure in Hawaiian mythology, figuring 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 Kamohoaliʻi.[1]

The word kāne alone means "man", and Kāne is one of the four major Hawaiian deities along with Kanaloa, , and Lono. As a result, Kāne-milo-hai is occasionally confused with the latter.[2]
