    You talked a lot about humans/deities rather than talking about creatures while there’s so many to talk about.
    What about the Menehunes(elves) of Hawaii? Or Faravainu, the giant eel monster of Tahiti?
    Both of these are one of the most well known creatures

    Katrina, I really enjoyed this video. You did a great job with the pronunciations! Most non-natives don't get as many right as you did (although Pele's little sister's name is pronounced "hee-eeYAka"). Thanks for showcasing my region! I'd love to hear more about other mythologies from around the world, like Asia or Australia. Native American? Your choice, I'll watch!

    Really love this show Katrina, by the way I am really interested in get to know all aspects of different cultures around the world, it's actually an hobby along the study of religions. I was told when child that knowledge doesn't occupy space and it's true.
    If possible an episode about South Africa would be awesome because I'm native from Africa and at fìve springs my mother bought me to Europe and I actually miss alot of stuff from there.

      Hi Todd. This is the link: teespring.com/stores/origins-explained-fanshop
      I am working on more designs, but it's no easy task... We'll get there though and have a wider variety in the near future, so I would definitely encourage you to wait if the 'Original' design is a little too basic for your taste!

    Some of these comments are plain ignorant...
    Born and raised on the big island of Hawaii and there's a lot more truth to "Polynesian legends" than you think. Come visit and I'll take you to a few places that will change your mind and life forever.
