Photos of Ancient Hawaiian Musical Instruments

Ancient Hawaiian Musical Instruments A recent discussion in our forum has photos of a man playing a Hawaiian nose flute and pictures from the Bishop Museum Collection of a dog's tooth ankle rattle, split bamboo dancing rattles, and feathered gourd hand rattles. I seem to remember reading there was one stringed musical instrument in Hawaii before the Spanish, Portuguese, Puerto Ricans, and Mexicans arrived, and it only had one string. Does anybody know anything more about that?
