This is set on "The Big Island". Hawaii was inhabited by little people known as Menehune. Some say Molowa had some Menehune blood in him and that was why he was only four foot tall. Recently, however, he'd been causing so much mischief that people were complaining. Today he disappeared. Who rid the island of Molowa?

Hawaii Island (nicknamed "The Big Island") – is the island with an active volcano called "Kilauea". A number of people live there. They claim it is safe because volcano emits lava and ash in the other direction. It is also the home of Pele – the "Goddess of Fire" or "Goddess Of The Volcano" as she is known. The rainfall on the island is extremely high and there are lots of lava tubes, butterflies and rainbows.
Before the Polynesians came to Hawaii, it was inhabited by little people known as Menehune [pronounced meh-neh-HOO-neh]. Some say Molowa had some Menehune blood in him and that was why he was only four foot tall. He originally came from Maui but he had been on the island for a number of years. Recently, however, he had been causing so much mischief that people were starting to complain.
Today it was discovered that he has mysteriously disappeared. Perhaps he has moved to another island or back to Maui. Your task is to work out who rid the island of Molowa.

"This was an easy mystery to costume and everyone really got into their parts. We had a mural of a lagoon with grass huts along one wall, torches along the entrance walk. The funniest part was pronouncing the names right. Having an Hawaiian with us to coach us didn't seem to help at all. This was the 4th mystery we have done and, as usual, we maxed out our facility."
