Foot Prints in Maui Lava Flows

Native Hawaiians told stories about the small footprints in the lava flows of Kahikinui, Maui, on the slopes of Haleakala.

They may be of ancient Hawaiians who were standing on a safe area in the middle of a lava flow. K.P. Emory of Bishop Museum believed the footprints were hand carved. The Native Hawaiians said that the footprints were the menehunes’, and that they weren’t walking on hot lava, but rather they were carrying heavy stones to the heiau of Loaloa.
