Lua-o-Milu

In Polynesian mythology (specifically: Hawaii), Lua-o-Milu is the land of the dead, ruled by Milu. Dead souls enter Lua-o-Milu through a trail called Mahiki. The spirits of the dead can watch what the living do and turn them to stone by staring at them. Some are strong enough to return to Earth, and some mortals are capable of going to Lua-o-Milu; those who do must not eat anything or they will not be capable of leaving.
