Kuma the Devil

On Kauai, the Japanese kahuna Kuma Kumakichi practiced black magic to blackmail people in Kewalo, Waialua, and Lawai, Kauai. He would flee when the Japanese press exposed him.

The Hawaiian Gazette says, “He is a mesmerizer in a way, something of a ventriloquist, goes into mediumistic trances when occasion requires, practises slight of hand in the performances of miracles and generally so terrifies the more ignorant among the Japanese that their gifts of propitiation enable him to live on the fat of the land.”
