Long ago, in and around the Hawaiian Islands, there were bottlenose dolphins, but these dolphins did not know how to spin in the air. They did leap but only to breathe the air and then to dive deep to seek the safety of the ocean, away from the loko ‘ino sharks that swam in the seas always looking to attack the dolphins. The evilest of those sharks was a scare covered shark named Pupuka. Among the many dolphins was a pod named Haku. This is the story of ‘Imi ‘ike and how he learned to spin and how he taught the others of his pod and how it spread to all the other bottlenose dolphins around the Hawaiian Islands.
