    No physical evidence for the existence of a historical people that fit the description of the Menehune has been discovered. [2] In Martha Warren Beckwith's Hawaiian Mythology, there are references to several other forest dwelling races: the Nawao, who were large-sized wild hunters descended from Lua-nu ʻ u, the mu people, and the wa people. [3].   A masterful mix of history, geography, anthropology, and the science of navigation, Sea People combines the thrill of exploration with the drama of discovery in a vivid tour of one of the most captivating regions in the People includes an 8-page photo insert, illustrations throughout, and 2 endpaper maps.

    Myth states that they were the descendants of Menehune, the son of Lua-nu'u, who appears in the chiefly genealogies of other areas as Ruanuku. The Menehune people were probably well distributed over all the Hawaiian islands, but myths and traditions concerning them cling more thickly to the island of Kaua'i. Luomala looked at Melanese and Hawai'ian mythology, with Casey zeroing in on Hawai'ian women's power. Knipe took an unfortunate Jungian tack on Hawai'i, while Indigenous Trask remained rooted in modern, Hawai'ian political structures. Luomala, Katharine.
