Into the Sea by Marshall Humble
I was out at Keawa’ula Beach for the New Moon. This area was known by the ancient Hawaiians for the spirits that dwelt there. Here, the spirits of those who died would be tested to be allowed to continue on to Po or be turned back. Here, the Hawaiians would hear the shuffling of feet and see the kukui lamp lights of dreaded night marchers.Ancient Hawaiians claimed the point was a leina (a jumping place into Po) where spirits leaped from life into the afterworld.
