Menehune


I plan on turning Sunday into Creature Sunday, so every weekend I'll post a drawing of a creature from folklore, mythology or urban legends from all over the world.

We start out with menehune from Hawaii.
They are said to be small people living in the deep forests. Their favorite food is bananas, but they quite like fish too. They are amazing craftspeople who can build almost anything.

While they are said to have lived on the islands since before humans came around, they were most likely inspired by European fairies as there are no stories about from before Europeans showed up.

As much as I love the Hawaiian print, I thought that menehunes only wear white loincloths.

"there are no stories about from before Europeans showed up."
Possibly because the Hawaiians didn't have a writing system?

I like how he reminds me of the characters in 'Lilo and Stitch'!

There was a archaeologist show about them a while back. There's actually a TON of building foundations and walls from their work. It's believed they weren't a myth, but a real people from the Philippines, I think.
