Hawaii legends of the mystical and shy forest dwellers are small in size about two feet. Stories have been told that some are only six inches high and can fit into the palm of a hand, and noted to be industrious builders.
The legend of their evolution can be noted back to the Marquesas Islanders who have claimed to have settled in Hawaii in O to 350 A.D. As more settlers came to Hawaii the menehune's believed to have hid in the valleys. In the daytime, they worked and played and scoured for food in the dark of the night. And so the Legend of the little people or Menehune was born.
Todays speculation on the Legend of the mystical Menehune remain a mystery to many and stories are still told.
Wherever they came from the menehune has emerged from the past as playful elves.
