Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture
A favorite reference for Hawaiian Studies teachers for more than 3 decades, Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture has established itself as a thoroughly researched, useful educational tool. In 1982, it was expanded to include a unit on “The Land and the People” and a unit on “Warfare and Weapons,” which provide the most comprehensive information available on these topics as well as illustrations of typical weapons used in battle.
The revised 1992 edition offers updated statistics for all units in the same attractive, easy-to-use format:
- The 18 unit resource book features 60 original illustrations, many of which depict scenes and artifacts not found in other Hawaiiana texts
- Attractive unit symbols atop each page make locating specific information simple
- Boldface type clearly denotes topic headings
- A practical index makes finding references easy
- Activities, study questions, and an up-to-date supplementary reading list make this book a must for anyone who teaches Hawaiiana
This Hawaiian culture text will appeal to all who seek a deeper understanding of Hawai‘i and the rich heritage of the Hawaiian people.
