Why have Hawaiian-sounding names?
Long ago an expedition from the universe of Pililani traveled into a lower dimension.
They discovered a planet, the third from its sun, and after building numerous pyramids and archeological wonders across the globe, they settled on islands in a vast ocean.
They taught the indigenous people their language and intermingled their culture with the traditions of the native Polynesians.
Eventually, the Pililanians left to return to their home universe. They departed in their intergalactic crafts, leaving behind legends of rulers, architects and artisans who were vastly more powerful and long-lived than the humans of that world.f that world.
