IN HAWAII, KUKUI is a Candlenut, and the tree from which it grows, is a symbol of enlightenment, protection and peace. Candlenut was considered to be the body form of Kamapua’a, the pig god. IN THE 

MEXICAN-AMERICAN community there is a creature known as “EL CUCUY”. It is a creature that eats children who misbehave when they are told to go to bed…and BLAH BLAH ROOTS BLAH!!

IN THE BAY AREA, CUKUI is us! A bunch of chicanos, south pacific 
islanders, TATTOOers, & GRAFF HEADS.

CUKUI started as a small collaboration between amigos Orly Locquiao, and Sammy Rodriguez. It was officially launched in November 2008 in San Jose, California. Since its inception, Jason Locquiao and others have joined the crew to help Cukui become recognized as a new genre in art and streetwear.
