Island lore : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

What is the most interesting hawaiian legend that you have heard?

-- Elizabeth Mays (, January 25, 1999


For me, it's the menehunes that dug the menehune ditch on Kauai or the night marchers.

-- Roy Inouye (, January 25, 1999.

Definately the nightmarchers!! I lived on the big island, and heard so many stories about them. You are never supposed to look at them directly.

-- Pa'ahana (, June 02, 1999.

I like the maui legends, personally. But then in any case, the legends of the Night warriors, and how they'll kill/maim anyone who looks at them is rather interesting. Kind of makes you wonder who started it... perhaps Kamehameha or some trouble makers?
