Hawaiian Mythology

The Gods and Spirits of Hawaii

MILU

Hawaiian Underworld Spirit

Also known as Miro, Miru

'Owner of the Land of Spirits'

These spirits seem to end up in a cave. Not a very jolly place. The spirits can turn you into stone if they stare at you on visiting days. If you are foolhardy enough to visit you will have to stay if you eat anything.

Milu does his best and staffs his cave with large lizards who keep the flies down. They enjoy this so we are sure he feels he is doing something for the ecology.
