Ghosts at Mokuaweoweo (summit crater of Mauna Loa)

In 1904, Peleliilii said he went up Mokuaweoweo (summit crater of Mauna Loa) and saw over 1,000 ghosts of “all nationalities” and all ages:

“The babies came and sat in my lap, the old ones walked around me and some were lying down. They were playing all kinds of instruments except a drum. … there were many animals.”

Peleliilii said he usually threw money or liquor into the crater. But this time he came empty handed, which angered the hungry ghosts.
