Our history is filled with all sorts of stories and legends about ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and other mythical creatures, legendary monsters, and supernatural beings. Most of them, of course, are fiction, others – probably too, but, it’s possible that a tiny part of those stories is true. Instead of talking about the same old Hollywood monsters like the aforementioned vampires and werewolves, we’ll look at some little-known, but just as mysterious creatures from legends and mythos of different countries, cultures and continents.
According to the lore, dwarves prefer the cold snowy mountains, but the Menehune, aka the Hawaiian dwarves, got lucky with the climate. Just like their cave-dwelling brethren, the Menehune were said to be incredibly talented craftsmen. Apart from this tidbit, though, not much is known about this race of humanoids. When the first Polynesians arrived to Hawaii, they saw remnants of relatively advanced civilization with roads, temples and amazing statues spread across multiple islands. To this day there are no physical remnants or direct evidence of the Menehune.
