Hawaiian Mythology by Martha Beckwith

Product Description

Ku and Hina -Man & Woman- were the great ancestral gods of heaven and earth for the ancient Hawaiians. The Hawaiian gods were like great chiefs from far lands who visited among the people, entering their daily lives sometimes as humans or animals, sometimes taking residence in a stone or wooden idol.

Ancient Hawaiians lived by the animistic philosophy that assigned living souls to animals, trees, stones, stars, and clouds, as well as to humans. Religion and mythology were interwoven in Hawaiian culture; and local legend and genealogies were preserved in song, chant, and narrative. This book is a classic work of folklore and ethnology, and the definitive treatment of Hawaiian mythology.
