I love this forum and all of the work you folks do.
I've collected some of it over the years.
Now I've got something for you.
I've been thinking about this for a while and finally got some time to do it.

I bought a book in Hawai'i a few years back that was called "Teller of Hawai'ian Tales" by Eric Knudsen.
From that book, I chose Hina, The Woman in The Moon to read to you.
I thought it might inspire some of you to hear some good old Hawai'ian legend.
Enjoy.

I'll post another one tomorrow.

Mahalo for the kinds words.

Here is another story, which recounts something experienced by Knudsen during his days on Kauai, his home.
I really like this one because of the odd use of wood involved in an oahi.

I'm hoping this stuff will inspire you to carve more magnificent works of art.
Each of these stories are chosen by me toward that end.

It may be a bit before I get another one up.
But when I do, it will be the story of Pele's Revenge.

For today, this story is called Na Oahi...

Pablus!!! Those are excellent. You have a great voice for talkin' story. Those would make great Podcasts! If interested or have any questions about pursuing the idea, feel free to get in touch with me.

Thanks for the generous gift!!

Pablus, Na Oahi is a beautiful story. I remember talking with you in your home after all the party guests had left on the night I visited. You told me about the Hawaiian "fireworks" and how they were thrown off the cliffs. It was nice to hear it again. I've been playing these stories for my family when we are eating dinner together. Thank you for such a nice gift!
