Legends of Maui
Ancient Hawaiian legends are very important pieces of culture that are passed down from one generation to the next. It is done through storytelling and highlights the important tales of how the Hawaiian Islands were formed, how they got their names and what each should be remembered for.
Ancient Hawaiians have a deep connection to nature and use myths and legends to explain them. According to legends, a demigod Maui pulled the Hawaiian Islands from the sea and lassoed the sun atop Haleakala, the island’s highest peak. Maui was named after this mythological being, maybe because the shape of the island resembles that of what his head and body looked like. Paddling outrigger canoes, the first ancestor of the Hawaiian Islands followed the stars and birds across the sea to Hawaii. They called it “the land of raging fire”. Maui’s history, like the other Hawaiian Islands, is one of wars and conquests where one king would take over another king’s land.
