Here, find 20 tales that include encounters with Pele and faceless spirits, ancient haunted temples and spirits coming back from the dead, guardian spirits of remote valleys and the restless ghosts of ancient Hawaiian warriors. These stories offer an unique, terrifying, and unusual glimpse into the folklore of Hawaii. Meet the old woman who asked for a ride, only to disappear upon reaching her destination.
