29. On the Big Island of Hawaii there are the night marchers which are the ghosts of the Kau warriors who died in a volcanic eruption after a battle. There footprints are actually still preserved in Kilauea national park. I’ve had a lot of people both locals and people from the mainland tell me of hearing a large group of men marching and chanting late at night around Kau. You apparently smell sulfur and you have to get naked and lay on a fetal position. I’ve heard other people say you just can’t look at them and if you do you’ll die. I’ve had some friends tell me they were camping in a remote valley when they heard about twenty people march by speaking Hawaiian and they smelled sulfur they didn’t see any one since they were in a tent. Also had an old Hawaiian Uncle tell me when he was a teenager working on a ranch at night he saw and purple light go from Kilauea to Moana loa and the next day Moana loa erupted for the first time in a while it was sometime in the 80s.
