HUAKA’I PO, A HAWAIIAN GHOST
- Nightmarchers: huaka’i pō
- Ghosts of ancient Hawaiian warriors who rise from their grave on certain sacred nights to march out to re-enact old battles once more.
- Often marching right after sunset or right before dawn, they are known to kill whomever witnesses the march, although there are ways around this.
- If one of your ancestors are among the ranks you can be spared, but if that is not the case you can also avert your eyes, or in some parts lay face down on the ground to show respect.
- To respect them will lead to great things, but if you don’t it almost always leads to death.
