The Big Kahuna

A kahuna in the Hawaiian language refers to a doctor. There were also kahunas that did bad things like hexes and curses. I guess it could be compared to your common day witches. Kahunas could release a curse or place one.

I would like to dedicate this thread to myths and legends of Hawaii.

The goddess Pele is considered to be the BIG CHEESE. (Not big kahuna)

She is also known for cursing Hawaii visitors who return to their homeland with volcanic rock, and has always been considered a protector of the Hawaiian people. Every year many lava rock pieces are shipped back to Hawaii from around the world from people who claim to have experienced horrible misfortune since removing the rocks, accompanied by letters asking for Pele's forgiveness..


many, many more stories of hawaiian gods and goddess including stories of Pele to come if there is an interest??

This is really interesting. The Pele curse is kinda creepy. o.0

I think that the Hawaiian language sounds like Japanese. Is it known where Hawaiians came from? Or were they always there? I heard it was a mystery.

Kirei it is still a mystery. Some believe that hawaiians came from tahiti. There are legends that trace back to tahiti and there is evidence that the ancient hawaiians were once there.

Merry Christmas is: Mele Kalikimaka

There's a song Bing Crosby sang about Christmas in Hawaii called - can you guess? - Mele Kalikimaka.

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day
That's the island greeting that we send to you from the land where palm trees sway
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way to say Merry Christmas to you

[this is repeated two or three times in the song]


It's a nice-sounding song when you hear it. =)
