Wondering if there are any original documents in text format (i.e. "etexts") for any of the Southeast Asian or Polynesian mythology, folklore, or just general documents written in their native language (that are also copyright free or permissive like creative commons license or similar). Some of the languages that these could be in which I'm not sure is:

  • Tagalog
  • Telugu
  • Tamil
  • Malay
  • Burmese
  • Hawaiian
  • Maori
  • Japanese (I'm just including anyways).
  • Thai
  • Indonesian
  • Javanese
  • Rongorongo

Taking a look at something like Tagalog literature brings me to a sort of Tagalog script such as this, but it is a bit messed up and in romanized Tagalog rather than Tagalog script. I am looking for the original scripts instead of romanized versions. Project Gutenberg doesn't have any in Tagalog script, for example, as far as I can tell.
