Legend of Ma'ili

Ma`ili lies between the hills of Puu o` Hulu and Puu Ma`iliili. Puu o Hulu was said to be a chief who was in love with Ma`iliili, one of twin sisters, but he could never tell, whenever he saw them, which of the two was his beloved. A mo`o (lizard) changed them all into mountains. So he is still there watching and trying to distinguish his loved one.
