    Maui Hikina, Volume Ii

    By: Kepa Maly

    At the request of Garret Hew, Manager of East Maui Irrigation Company (EMI), Kumu Pono Associates conducted a two phased study of cultural-historical resources in the lands of Hamakua Poko, Hamakua Loa, and Ko?olau, in the region of Maui Hikina (East Maui), Island of Maui. The study included—conducting detailed research of historical records in public and private collections (Volume I); and conducting oral history interviews with individuals known to be familiar with the...

    In general, it will be seen that the few differences of history and recollections in the cited interviews are minor. If anything, the differences help direct us to questions which may be answered through additional research, or in some cases, pose questions which may never be answered. Diversity in the stories told, should be seen as something that will enhance interpretation, preservation, and long-term management of the land and water resources of Maui Hikina.

    The Voices of Eden

    By: Albert J. Schütz

    Hawaiian history has been studied and described from many different points of view—cultural, archaeological, geographical, and botanical, among others. But very little has been written about Hawai'i's postcontact linguistic history: how outsiders first became aware of the Hawaiian language, how they and the Hawaiians were able to understand each other, and later, how they tried to record and analyze Hawaiian vocabulary and grammar. Our first records of European contact ...

    A Vocabulary of Words in the Hawaiian Language

    By: Lahainaluna

    Perhaps the Sandwich Island’s Mission owes an apology to the literary world for having reduced to writing a language of such variety and extent as the Hawaiian, and published so many books on it, without having given any account either of the genius, structure or peculiarities of the language. Many reasons, however, exist why so little has been done in this respect. The want of leisure in any member of the Mission for setting down to labors purely literary, is one reason...

    Previous to the year 1906 the researches of the Bureau were restricted to the American Indians, but by act of Congress approved June 30 of that year the scope of its operations was extended to include the natives of the Hawaiian islands. Funds were not specifically provided, however, for prosecuting investigations among these people, and in the absence of an appropriation for this purpose it was considered inadvisable to restrict the systematic investigations among the I...

    To Honor Mau

    By: Gary T. Kubota

    This book is about the voyage to deliver a double-hulled sailing canoe thousands of miles as a gift to renowned wayfinding navigator Mau Piailug of Satawal, Micronesia. Native Hawaiians delivered the canoe to express their gratitude to Mau for sharing his knowledge of non- instrument navigation 30 years ago, reviving their sailing culture. Courtesy of Polynesian Voyaging Society This map of the Pacific Ocean charts the route of the sailing canoes Hokulea and Alingano Mai...

    Title Searching for the Non-Professional

    By: Jackie Mahi Erickson

    Many people are curious about the history of ownership of their property, or wonder if they have a claim to property occupied by another. Others are curious as to whether their family ever owned land in Hawaii. These people may be reluctant to undertake the expense of hiring someone to do a title search for them and would be willing to do the work themselves, if they had some guidance on how to proceed. This guide is designed to assist the layperson in tracing property ...

    Most people who are interested in conducting a title search have a specific parcel of property in mind when they start. This type of search follows a specific pattern and the searcher must take care that no steps are omitted or there will be much duplication of effort. The procedure requires identifying the present owner and then tracing ownership backwards in time to the Great Mahele. The first step to be taken involves the proper identification of the property in question.

    Tales of the Menehune

    By: Mary Kawena Pukui

    These legends have been selected with the thought that, in length and content, they are suitable to be told or read to young children as well as to be read by older ones. Some are very old legends, common to many Pacific islands, and others are of recent origin. The menehune were the little people of Hawaiian tales. As they lived in the mountain forests and only came to the lowland at night, they were not often seen. Yet the Hawaiians could describe them. They were two ...

    Laka stood among the great trees of the koa forest. "This is such a tree as my grandmother told me of," he thought. "It is straight and has grown strong fighting the mountain winds. Such a tree will make a strong canoe, one that can fight ocean waves." Then Laka prayed and went to work with his stone tool. All day he worked. At last the great tree fell, and Laka went home, tired but satisfied. "Tomorrow I shall trim off the branches," he thought. "I shall cut the log to...
