WANAANA. An Essay by is'icliol: Dr, C. F. frweet sounds promise to evolve love ami Joving-kiiidnesf, these thought i nameless, hopeless myriads swurm into beinjr. beeminirlv ereat-d only to yell and murder aud desecrate the beautiful life which surrounds them. An early traveler ays: " heard a shriek expressive of the ut must norror, wiieii a powerful man ran rapidly past me and threw him seii ufi iue irrountl, senseless in a con vulsion. It was almost impossible to arouse or control him, and it appeared mat the man thought himself fctied by hid pur- owu wrath." 9 and 400,000, at the la Popular ScUnce Ntws. Oa Ttmjiaz to Death at the Hawai ian Islands. The Board of Health at Honolulu, renders monthly, a report of deaths, with causation, throughout the Ha waiian Islands. Seldom does this report lack an item, quite common place it" would set-ru, eight, teu or more deaths "unattended." So it might seem and so it is com mon, and no one wonders at Hono lulu, but everybody knows that a cer tain proportion, perhaps half, of th-se people, "unattended" by a regular physician, are victims of the death sorcery orincautation(pule anaauajl. Just bo many persous, native, have been found "prayed to death," somewhere lu a cave, or in his own filthy hut, or fleeing territied in his boat or canoe (waa), vainly seeking asylum from a old woman's prayer; while missions, and the Jaw, aud mo dern clothes and medicines are uu availing, for the mind of a native of the Sandwich Islands is "its own place." 1. The word-j pule and anaana are near ly synonymous; the idiom seems a form of emphasis. Licking serpents,2 these fair isl ands, "where only man is vile," pro duce the kahuna-anaana,3 with rattle (nukeke), hypnotic fascination, se creted poison, aud the power of death. If we except the atrocious details of child-murder, where a native father has been known to break his child's back for the sake of annoying the mot her, 4 there is no darker outgrowth of savagery than the anaana. This power of "praying" any person to death, even his chief or the kiug,5 gave to the kahuna anaana an in tluence outlasting the force of arms among all the tribes of Polynesia Originating in part as a matter of jealousy between priest and warrior chief, there was usually collusion and priests and chiefs were united in their control of the mass of the na tives. Vancouver aud Cook found the anaana to be "an ancient establish ment. When human victims were needed for priestly sacrifice they were selected from among the king's ene mies, and then, one good turn would deserve another. 2. No snakes are to be tound on any island of the group. Bouie years since a vessel loaded with dyewoods, from Brazil, and reported to contain some of these un desired visitors, was ordered out of port by an armed mob. 3. Kahuna-anaana, a priest or doctor practising sorcery. "They were thorough ly detested and the people feared them, and do to this day. There were, also, doc tors of ghosts and spirits (kahuna ubane), doctors of winds (Kahuna makani). doctors attracting the gods towarJ the sick (kahu na hoonohonoho akua;, doctors of diseases of the old (kahuna auuiakua) doctors, priests of the goddess Ple(kahuna .Pele)" Kemy. 4. The mother retorted by the same mutilation of her other child, ihe father's favorite. See Dibble's History. 5. Jarvissiys: ''Chief came often un der the baneful influence of anaana." iJ is tory Hawaii, p. 21. A kauuna-auaana believed to be capable of exerting this power could have his services secured (like a hired assassin) by gifts . of white fowls, brown hogs, woolly dogs, etc., 6. Death was almost certain to follow the machinations of a kahuna of ap proved power, unless his dupe could promptly secure the intervention of a kahuna of higher rank that is, one of greater age. 6 See Bird's " Hawaiian Archipelago." This exercise of murder as the right of the strongest is but an outcome of the mighty tabu, emboiiment of self ish tyranny. Tabu, a forbidding, is of two sorts what the king or chief forbids, and what the kahuna forbids. Kingly tabu it was, and puuished by death, to step in the shadow of king or chief ; to walk in the shadow of the house of any chief, unless esjecially clothed ; or if the native failed to fall prostrate at the name of his chief. Priestly tabus: For noise during prayer; or if a common native stayed with his family on sacred (tabu) days, etc., etc. A man must choose, for his personal tabu-Idol, gome object, such as a tree, a fish or a f ru t. To him henceforth it was tabu (death) to touch or partake of this his own iabu. By chiefs and priests alike, for their own benefit, certaiu paths, springs and bathing places were, at intervals, made tabu. A sudden tabu might, at any time, be declared against afiairs not usually prohibited ; even an occu pation, privilege or habit, class of animals, or a manner of eating or drinking might, without warning, become tabu. To women, bananas, cocoanuts and pork were always for bidden by tabu Yellow was the tabu color of royalty, red or tue priest hood; thus flowers and doming oi either color were forbidden the native. 7 7 In " Legends and Myths of Ilawaii," Kalakaua, the late Hawaiian k ng. says : During a strict tabu very fire and every light was extinguished, no can-e was shoved irom the shore, no bathing was per mitted, the pig and fowls were muzz'ed or claced under calabashes that they nugnt utter no noise, the people conversed m whispers, and the priests and their assist ants alone wens to be seen without their places of abode. It was a season of deathly b;ence, and was thought to be especially grateful to the gods." Evidently selfishness was deter mined to appropriate every coveted object, and tabu ras the method. The writer remembers, with return ing appetite, a tabu feast to which he was invited, as a foreigner. There were gold fish, poi of the breadfruit, edible flowers of the taro (arum t8culentum) cooked as greens (for which acres of the plant had been rendered unfruitful), roasted dogs and halted seaweed. On this occasion cloaks made of the tabued feathers of the sacred O-o were worn by the queen and others. Yielding subjects indeed have been the islanders, whether exposed to the greedy strength of tabu or the malign influence of its corollary, our present theme, the praying anaana. Born amid nature's supremest beauty, where grandeur and fragrance and 8 Detween 300.000 time of Cook's visit 9 Jarvis. There were tribe3 and individuals of the milder type; the charming cry "Aloha" ("greeting." or "love to you") voices the gentler phase of the native life, which, at present, prepon- acrares under the protection of gov eminent, aud yet is none the less in abject subjection to ghoul and shark- fiend, Pele's fire and kahuna's threat Although capable of great exertion, on sea or Jand, the grandly muscular bodies of the natives, if influenced by input or dread, absolutely lack ten acity of life. In 1S53, alarmed by smau-pox, thousands threw them selves into the water, to stop the fever, and many died in the act. An epidemic of measles, a few years later, proved harmless to the whites, but several thousand natives perished. 10 10 "The whites never die of boohoo fever,' a di-eae imported to these islands from Panama, but the resistance of the native population is to weak that great numbers yield, at times, to this ailment." N. England Gazette, February, 1873. Mr. Bishop thinks that this "ready surrender to sickness is, in most cases, due to a definite belief in a demon whom the native feels working in his vitals, aud whom it is hopeless to re sist." 11 11 Rev. S. E. Bishop' "Why Are the Ilawaiians Dying Out?" In 1S78 a native called at the shop of Mr. C h. Williams, an undertaker in Honolulu, and bought for himself aud wife two coffins; went home, bathed, changed his dress, aud was buried with his wife. There was no suspi cion of poisoning. A native workman who had been in Mr. Williams' employ for many years, admiring one day a showy coffin of koa wood which he himself had polished, strougly hinted his de sire to be interred therein. "Yes, Moku, when you die it shall be your pahu (box)," said the emplo'er. But the impatient Moku could endure for but one brief day, for he was burled within forty hours of acquiring his new possession. In the latter instance some emotion other than fear ambi tion, perhaps, or avarice, seemed to influence the early death. 12 12 Mr. Williams is a most trustworthy witness. j i is nearly impossible to induce a native, wrhen sick, to submit to medi cal treatment. Here the power of the ordinary kahuna, one of the saving sort, is displayed. Clack pigs are roasted for the invalid and his friends and the kahuna, while communica tions, well paid for, are held whh the powers above and below. Tnereis then no limit to the fortitude with which the patient will endure suffering un relieved. Pretending to obey the for eign phjsiciau, he follows the direc tions of the kahuna, who, in his twofold fu-uctiou of doctor and priest, is preaching and practising behind the scenes and throwing away the mix tures of his foreign rival (perhaps 6f questionable adaptation themselves). 13 13 In chronic diseases a talisman or charm (auruakua) is often a native's sole reliance. The protecting charm may be a shell, a nut, or a small idol which the pa tient worships, begging for relief in his 6icknes. A gentleman, partly Hawaiian by birth, now m thi co in'ry. tells the writer that during his mother's last illness he fo nd her obstinately depending for cure uoon an object wrapped in ti leaves. Tnis was by iiirection of a kahuna. The niece, a young girl, also ailing, lav "unat tended," with a star to tak- care of her, as auruakua, enwrapped in her thoughts. Thus a doomed race courts death, j What we have now seen of character, hnbit and surroundings of the native Hawaiians clearly shows that it would be possible to exert any deadly influ ence upon these yjeople through threats, or their own tears and super stitious, or the slightest exposure or shock. The processes of praying to death are as follows: "Any native whose goods were desired, or who might otherwise nave given cause or olleuse, summoned by anaana, instantly sus pended his avocation" ana, hastening to the Kahuna, crouched in abject sub mission to his will, 14 until death took place, usually in a lew hours and apparently from exhaustion, lo It Jarvis. 15 Brigham says (note 9, "Venerable Savage"): At present poisons are often employed, "and it is reasonable to attribute these tragical deaths chieny to the use of poison. Kalaipahoa. the poison god, is suppo-ed to have been carved out of a poi sonous wood." "Apo leo was the art of depriving a person of the power of articu late speech. Thekahnna prayed at night to Mi and Hiiaka. presenting them with with uwa (the native intox.cant. piper methvsticum). The next day he sougnt his victim am (it was believed) he para lyzed his voice. The sufferer might die in h few days if the sorcerer persisted." Con densed from Alexander's Brief History. Frequently a kahuna repairs in per son to the abode of his victim and places hi ms-lf in the presence of the man, thereupon muttering incanta tions and prayers. The kahuna's own favorite god is usually addressed and also such aumakuas and deities as are supposed to have been offended by the accused. 16 The subject sits quietly before his antagonist, takes no food and but little drink, and dies in a few day3. 17 10 The kahuna informs him that he has committed some act such as the violation ot a vow, which has offended the family deity, or aumakua. and through mental apprehension the effect of sickness ensues." Bishop. 17 "In many instances," Mr. Bishop says, "death is due to a superstitions belief in a demon whom the native feels working in his vitals, and whom it is hopeless to resist. An example will illustrate. In 1S73 O-o had long been cook in the family of Madam Dominis, mother of the consort of the deposed queen. When a young man his good looks nearly cot him his life. One morning his mistress found no cook to prepare breakfast an irregularity so Kssibie among the natives that his absence throughout the day was overlooked. But as he did not come to the kitchen the next morning and it was reported that he was being prayed to death, Mrs. Dominis walked to his straw hut. O-o had been married the week before, breaking an earlier promise, and the slighted woman had repaired to his hut, intent on revenge. Mrs. Dominis describes the man's appear ance to have expressed great exhaus tion, the eflect of fasting and fear. He was seated on the floor, naked even the ordinary loose clothing having been thrown off, bis hair disordered, the eyes fixed on the ground, the fea tures and limbs tremulous and cold to the touch. His friends (wife and rela- j tives) chanted a melancholy death song, while the author of the trouble was found crouched in a corner of the room under a heapof shawls and rags, her eyes fixed sleepily upon her form er lover. Mrs. Dominis found no dif ficulty in expelling the jealous one. O o recovered his balance in a few days and again cooked merrily on, an instance of recovery without medical treatment, the irritating cause having been removed. I hope to be pardoned if I ad and anecdote in further illustration of this subject. The American consul at La haiua, on the island of Maui, and Peter Treadway, t-herifF of the island, had each a body-servant; both the servants were also policemen. An old native, who lived a league or more from Lahaina, having been accused of some petty crime, the two policemen were sent to arrest him. The culprit expressed his resignation, but, while he recognized the propriety on their part of obeying the Sheriff's order, he nevertheless assured the officials that it would be his duty to pray them to death, and the policmen sat down in the hut before their prisoner. Their plight was soon -known at La- haina; the consul, highly valuing bis servant, rode to the scene of counter imprisonment, but the sheriff", who was compelled to be present at a court session, stayed at home. The appear ance of the policemen resembled that already described in O-o's case; noth ing had been eaten since the old man began his invocations, but fear had reduced the vital powers to a degree far lower than could have been ex pected from the fasting alone. The consul's man readily obeyed his mas ter's order to go home, where he re covered; but native logic required the sheriff's presence to command his own man; the second policeman re mained behind and died. If the victim were a chief, or a per son living at a distance, the effort was to secure some tissue or secretion of the body; here the saliva was of es pecial service. Unimpeachable, in truth, must be the character of the royal spittoon bearer, to this day an office of dignity in the farther isles of the Pacitlc. All the "divinity that doth hedge a king" must prove of slight avail if speck or slightest trace of the kingly spittle fall in possession of any sorcerer ready for regicide. A nail-paring, a hair, or a tooth would also be favored (as in clairvoyance) by any business-like kahuna who war rants a result. The kahuna seems to deify this material, which he then ad dresses as an idol or fetish, praying it to destroy the life of the patient. (18). IS. "The material is finally buried, or burned, at night, with incantations." Alexander. It is obvious that the dread of death, and the expectation of it, which seize upon this race when approached by anaana, chiefly explain its uncanny power; yet, in certain instances, pos sibly such as that of Madam Dominis' cook, we may summon modern sci ence and dignify our subject by con sidering it a phase of hypnotic sug gestion. The sole "suggestion" is death, and, from a critical standpoint, we are only justified in recording a few well described cases as possible verifications of the power oi a hyp notic will. But the most recent triumph of anaana has not been death in copore, mere Joss or the life or the body. Well-couflrmed accounts show that it is to her fear of the deadly prayer that Liliuokalani owes the loss of her right to rule her little kingdom, Ha waii nei. . Letters from informed sources represent the queen to have been long in kanuna-toils. "The queen is acting under the sug gestions of the kahunas; a witch-wom an, I'uioio or Liauai, has auuouuced herself a goddess, threatening the queen at behest of the deities, in case she fails to restore the ancient privi leges of the sorcerers, even to re-establishment of the rites of heathen dom an i repossession of lands," (to be taken back from the foreign residents: clearly conspiracy of kahuna with avari ious politicians). "In case she, the queen, fails in all this, vengeance will tollow promptly, and she will be buried alive, with anaana "(19). Liliu okalani, as is well known, has vacil lated pitifully between good and evil counsels. It is reported on creditable authority, that sacritices were offered in the ancient way, and by the kahu nas, in the palace premises; aud yet, next day, we find her calling in the native Protestant clergy, for their prayers to Jehovah, and agaiu she ex plained to a deputation of ladies her desire to do aright, (20;, fiually, bow ever, yielding "gladly to the badder end." 19. From a letter written about January 14. Another letter says: "A native, ad dressir g the mob urged the people to seize and bury her, the kahunas assisting." 20. "The queen reasoned with Parker, her prime minister, who opposed her con duct. She seemed beside herself with ter ror concerning the aumakuas, who are threatening to bury her. Letter fiom Ho nolulu. Incredible it all appears. But there is "an especial anaana" for this fami ly (21). .L -leiohoku, brother and heir apparent of Kalakaua, is known to have been prayed to death. 21. "An especial anaana" is an expres sion in native use, e. i., the family is es pecially superstitious and devoted to its own destruction. L.iliuokalaurs ancestor, Kaumauili, the last king of Kauai, was subdued by Kamehameha I. See Poman der's Polynesian Kaces. The writer well remembers Like like, (22), a bright and charming prin cess, well educated, and speaking French aud liiiglish. An eruption of the' volcano Kilauea had persisted nearly nine mouths, when the akuas announced that a royal victim must be sacrificed to stay the. progress of the advancing lava. Likelike imme- d.ately offered herself as a sacrifice for her people. She slowly sank, in spite af medical treatment, which her husband insisted on, and died in reb- Iace over the ample folds of your gown of rich China silk; free then your will, conscience and character, until a certain tierce light has laid bare your cowardice, fickleness, hesi tancy, and truly, no character at all, : with tinal f ifeit of crown jewels and leis in a panic of ingrained savage superstition. 3Xcu) ttlHTtlSCIlirilt3 95 Syrup 17V6. 1S93 THJi PACIFIC II A RD WA RE COMPANY Have received lewis' ccm2::;at:ox spbav rrMFs, for which yon have been waiting-.
