The Floating Island of Happiness

Tired of dealing with life? Interested in living on the floating island of happiness, or the “Island of Peace?”

Kahuna Kaauamoku told Hawaiians in Hana, Maui, to prepare for the floating island. So the twenty-six Hawaiians decorated her house with ti leaves and pua hala, prayed, danced, and chanted. Around the kahuna’s house, they built a spirit fence and placed their belongings, including animals, tools, kitchen stoves, and food.

Would the floating island come and bring salvation to the believers? Or was Kahuna Kaauamo just a “wise guy who can pull the wool over other folks’ eyes?” Read more about it in “Floating Islanders of Hana Postpone Happy Land.”
