Nā moʻolelo Hawaiʻi o Ka Wā Kahiko: Stories of Old Hawaiʻi

Nā moʻolelo Hawaiʻi o Ka Wā Kahiko includes adaptions of 45 traditional Hawaiian legends, written at a 4th grade reading level. The collection includes creation myths and stories about the people of old Hawaiʻi —their relationships with their gods and with each other, their ways of making a living from the land and from the sea, the value they placed on crafts, weapons and warfare, sports and games, music and dance. As these stories inform the readers about life in old Hawai‘i, they entertain as well. This book also includes illustrations, pronunciation, guide and glossary.

REVIEWS:

“The collection is a superb resource for learning the history and customs of the Hawaiians, and the legends open windows to Hawaiian culture that textbooks close.”

—Iowa Reading Journal

“While it may be read alone, its primary purpose is to serve as a literary accompaniment to chapters in Betty Dunford’s popular textbook The Hawaiians of Old.”

—Multicultural Review

“... it was enjoyable to leap along behind the stories, like a fish skimming just under water just a thin skim away from understanding. The book is nicely designed with wide margins on each page, featuring a learn-as-you-go index to unfamiliar Hawaiian terms used in the stories.”

—The Honolulu Advertiser

“Informative and entertaining stories explain the origin of the islands, the contributions of the gods, and the exploits of great warriors. Black-and-white illustrations depict a variety of cultural artifacts.”
