Description by OLDIES.com:
HAUNTED HAWAII goes beyond the glossy brochures for a different view of paradise, one where the spirits of violent native warriors do not rest quietly, where mystery and magic emerge in the dead of night and unsuspecting visitors and natives are forcibly acquainted with the ethereal residents of the past. We'll examine numerous firsthand accounts of paranormal encounters, talk with spiritualists and mediums, and trace the rich history of the islands' myths and legends for clues about who the spirits might be. Are they just stories, or are the many ghosts said to inhabit the jewel-like islands real? HAUNTED HAWAII presents the stories, the skeptics, and the evidence, and invites you to decide for yourself.
The Polynesians who arrived here 1,000 years ago believed the islands harbored Mana or the spirits of life and today, spirits are still said to be everywhere in Hawaii. They are thought to have incredible power, controlling both nature and human life, and must be respected to avoid violent, inexorable wrath.
Allegedly home to a volcano goddess, the ghosts of fierce native warriors, and spirits that attack their victims in the dead of night, Hawaii is a place steeped in both the natural and supernatural. HAUNTED HISTORY ventures deep into the ghostly lore of the Hawaiian Islands to reveal a place of ethereal beauty, mystery, and enchantment.
Offering a thorough account of Hawaii s ancient spiritual beliefs as well as the region s eerie regional folklore, HAUNTED HISTORY: HAWAII investigates the paranormal activity of some of the world s most spectacular islands.
