Myths Legends of Polyns Book Description:

Myths & Legends of the Polynesians is an account of the history, art and mythology of the Polynesian peoples. The Polynesians had many myths and legends, but through the ages they had been circulated by word of mouth, and not recorded. They were recalled from the vast storehouse of time and memory by the old priests who treasured the old traditions, and by the kahuna or sorcerers who constantly relived the legends and sang the old songs. Polynesians have always had a strong romantic appeal to the outside world, possibly because of their enchanting island surroundings, their simple life and natural graces. Their legends have been woven into rich tapestries in this classic text. Stories of Myths and Legends of the Polynesians include: Koropanga and Rukutia Kelea and Kalamakua Uenuku Fairies and Taniwha The Tawhaki Cycle Pele the Fire–Godess The Spirit Worlds Io, Tangaroa, and Creation Tane' and Rongo THe Areoi Society and and Hula Dance
