Spooky Stories: Pork over the Pali

Spooky Stories: Pork over the Pali

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Halloween is less than a week away, and we brought in master storyteller Lopaka Kapanui shared some spooky Hawaiian tales on Sunrise. This one is the story behind why you should never bring pork over the Pali from the Windward side to the Leeward side.

Pele, the goddess of the volcano, and Kamapua'a, the pig god, have a disagreement. Pele chases Kamapua'a with her lava flow and it turns out that he gets to the Windward side of the island just in time to lay flat on the ground and chants and it treats the earth and great roots from trees to rise up and hold back Pele's lava flow and then the great rains come and cools off the fire.
