This is a text, of sorts The book is a collection of thoughts and details acquired by author, David Malo, a native Hawaiian born in 1793, who converted to Christianity and which may have shaded some of his recollections as he rejected the heathen ways of his ancestors Nevertheless, his writings add to an understanding of the ways of the ancients.Much of the book addresses definitions of Hawaiian language and lineages It is not for anyone seeking a cogent story, but, rather, relevant to those seeking particulars about Hawaii s cultural and religious practices prior to missionary contamination. Basically, this is an account of a Hawaiian native who was raised in a traditional lifeway and then converted to Christianity later in life He gives a unique historical narrative about how native Hawaiians lived in the first years post contact A lot of it is pretty dry and is like, Here s a list of the names of some fish, etc but the long, detailed descriptions of the taboo systems make it pretty important I had no idea how much killing there was under the kapu system This is a pretty important historical document, even if the author became slanted against idolatry by the time he was writing it. This book is definitely a treasure I ve seen it referenced in so many other books e.g La au Hawaii and in many interesting panels at the Bishop Museum, so I knew I had to read it Even though Emerson is definitely patronizing rude, I appreciated his notes and many of the facts he had to add, and the translation is still very readable despite being published than 100 years ago It was interesting to compare this translation with the Chun translation. This is a staple for anyone interested in Hawaiian culture This text becomes complex when you take into account Malo s influences at the time He had Christianity on one side and tradition on the other In a lot of ways, Malo is trying to write about everything that is Hawaiian and does a good job at it It becomes a very modern text due to Hawaii s contextual nature.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Moolelo Hawaii. book, this is one of the most wanted David Malo author readers around the world.
