Night marchers and forest-dwelling little people, volcanic goddesses, and human sacrifice – in Kauai, myths and legends litter the landscape. There are traditional and ancient oral histories passed down and around the Hawaiian islands about creation, survival and love of the land – what's known as "aloha aina." Not everyone pays heed to these ancient tales, but Kauai mythbusters beware: upset Ku, the god of war or Kanaloa, god of the underworld and ruler of the dead, and you might awaken suddenly on a moonlit evening with a night marcher padding across your lanai. We have compiled some of the most pervasive of urban legend, Kauai-style.
