When Kamehameha unified the islands into a single kingdom, an ideal for Native Hawaiian leadership was born. What was leadership like prior to Kamehameha’s rise, and why was his feat a defining moment for the culture? In Alaka‘i, Malcolm Nāea Chun combines traditions of the early chiefs with the well-recorded legacy of Kamehameha to piece together a picture of traditional leadership. Then, bringing this idea forward to the present day, he asks which qualities have been retained and which should be reintroduced.
