Early Hawaiian life is presented in the words of explorer Captain James Cook, naturalist Andrew Bloxam, missionary William Ellis, and Hawaiian scholars David Malo and Samuel Kamakau. In addition, contemporary Hawaiians living on the Kona Coast early in the twentieth century share their manao, or thoughts, on traditional life. Hawaiian culture is rich in some of the most artistic, functional, and abstract objects found anywhere in the Pacific. More than eighty illustrations feature religious images, feather capes, musical instruments, fishing gear, stylized ornaments, and a myriad of other items fashioned and used by native Hawaiians.

These treasures bear witness to a glorious, complex, and accomplished society. In learning about our past we gain knowledge of our present.About the AuthorDavid Young was born in Honolulu in 1948 to a kamaäina family.
