Menehune Ditch on the Island of Kaua’i, United States, North America

The Menehune were said to be dwarfs or little people who had advanced technology and lived in the forests and jungles of Hawaii. They were wiped out by the Tahitians when they came to Hawaii. They constructed ditches or canals from carved basalt stones without mortar, fitting them precisely. They also created giant "fish ponds" to breed fish. Their original name was said to be the "Mu".
