Searching for Legends

The first step in researching Hawaiian Mythology is looking for books that have been written about your chosen topic. Luckily, we have an excellent online index called the Hawaiian Legends Index that can help you find all kinds of books about your topic.

To begin:

1. Go to the Hawaiian Legends Index
2. If you know your topic, start with a "subject search"
3. If you don't know your topic, start with a "subject browse"
