Hawaiian Mythology This is Martha Beckwith's monumental 1940's study of Hawaiian mythology. Beckwith utilized numerous texts which are today rare or hard to obtain to construct this study. She gives all available variants of each myth or legend, including versions from other Pacific islands including Tahiti, Tonga, Samoa and others.

Neato! Goes well with my tiki addiction & intrinsic nerdiness (love discovering cultural facts, myths, traditions, etc.)! :)

I loved finding this one, because even though you would never guess by looking at him my wife and I adopted Ryan from Hawaii (he is 1/8 royal blood hawaiian, 1/8 pacific chinese 3/4 german/irish).
