Map of Lemuria superimposed over the modern continents from Scott-Elliott's The Story of Atlantis and Lost Lemuria.



Lemuria ( /lɨˈmjʊəriə/)  is the name of a hypothetical "lost land" variously located in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The concept's 19th century origins lie in attempts to account for discontinuities in biogeography; however, the concept of Lemuria has been rendered obsolete by modern theories of plate tectonics. Although sunken continents do exist – like Zealandia in the Pacific and the Kerguelen Plateau in the Indian Ocean – there is no known geological formation under the Indian or Pacific Oceans that corresponds to the hypothetical Lemuria.


Though Lemuria is no longer considered a valid scientific hypothesis, it has been adopted by writers involved in the occult, as well as some Tamil writers of India. Accounts of Lemuria differ, but all share a common belief that a continent existed in ancient times and sank beneath the ocean as a result of a geological, often cataclysmic, change, such as pole shift. There is no scientific evidence to support these claims.

Where was it?


Opinions vary as to the outline of the continent. King David Kalâkaua commissioned a map that showed a great Pacific landmass and another landmass in the Indian Ocean. Most agree that the Pacific region extended north above Hawai'i, east past Easter Island and to the west at least past Micronesia. Further, the legend says that the area now known as the Hawaiian Islands was the capital district of this land.


Is there any physical evidence of such a land?


There is some surprising evidence of an advanced civilization pre-dating the migratory Polynesians. We know that Polynesians in historical times had only rudimentary ability to shape stone. They had no known ability to cut stone in the sense that we would cut bread with a knife. Yet we find quite a few stones cut flat, notched, or precisely fitted throughout the Pacific. This raises the questions of who did the work and where they got this extraordinary technology.


Are there examples of this cutting in Hawai'i?


This is a photo of the Menehune Ditch on Kaua'i. You can visit it today. All that remains is a very small wall beside the road. Most of it is buried under the roadway. Of the small amount that shows, look at how nicely the stones are cut and fitted. No known Hawaiians or Pacific Islanders had the technology to do this. So the presence of this construction ability points to an earlier civilization. The earlier people in Hawai'i are generally dubbed the Menehune. But the real question is where they originated and where they got this stone cutting technology?


Are you saying that Lemurians were more advanced than the historical Pacific peoples?


Yes, it seems that way. The Menehune Ditch exists. The Tonga Arch and Tonga Pyramid exist. The amazing ruins of Nan Midol on Pohnpei exist. All involve cutting, lifting, and fitting stones using unknown technologies. These unknown technologies match or exceed our current abilities.






Our Timeline Assumptions

This proposition about a Lemurian continent and civilization may seem absurd to you at first. The accepted view is that humans arose over millennia from cave dwellers to arrow hunters to pottery makers to farmers to metalworkers and eventually through industrial innovation to us. The Pacific peoples never even developed a metalworking technology. How could there be an earlier civilization of such sophistication without even reaching the metalwork stage?

Yet the stones continue to ask these questions of us. How were they cut? How were they lifted? How were they fitted so well? And why was all of this extraordinary construction done? It begins to look as if our assumptions about the Pacific peoples or about the timeline of man are wrong. But if our assumptions are wrong, what other timeline scenario could possibly explain these engineering anomalies?

Why is this archaeology talk on the RealHula website?

The short answer is that RealHula sponsored the lectures for  Lemuria--Fact or Fiction?" But beyond that, hula in its deeper levels maintains part of an oral history of Hawai'i. The most sacred chants and dances are passed verbatim from Kumu Hula to serious student. Where do these sacred chants and dances originate? What do they preserve? Can some possibly hearken from this lost Motherland of Mu? These are significant questions for the Hawaiian culture and for the hula.

Mu was an immense continent covering nearly one-half of the Pacific Ocean. When she sank during volcanic destruction, fifty million square miles of water claimed her place. This vast continent and culture was the center of civilization some 25,000 years ago. This is the story of Churchward's search for the lost continent, from the vaults of an Indian temple to the four corners of the world.


"According to Churchward, Mu was a lost continent in the Pacific Ocean, which was destroyed in a global cataclysm tens of thousands of years ago; Mu was the original home of mankind, and all subsequent civilizations descended from it. The Pacific islands and their inhabitants are supposed to be the last survivors of this primordial motherland. Churchward's Mu was a huge continent, which stretched from Micronesia in the West to Easter Island and Hawaii in the East. Churchward also believed in a literal mid-Atlantic Atlantis. He proposed a global network of huge gas-filled caverns which, if vented, could cause large areas of land to be submerged."
