by Mary Kawena Pukui

Out of stock



This extraordinary collection of Hawaiian sayings—collected, translated, and annotated by Mary Kawena Pukui—offers a unique opportunity to savor the wisdom, poetic beauty, and earthy humor of these finely crafted expressions. This book is the product of a collecting effort that was begun by Mrs. Pukui at about the age of fifteen, around 1910, and continued throughout her long and honored career as a translator and collector of historic Hawaiian materials and as a teacher and lecturer on the language, music, and dance of traditional Hawai‘i.
