Ke Kumu Aupuni - $35.00
Author: Kamakau, Samuel
Format: Hardcover

Samuel Kamakau's history now available in his own language and in the order in which he told it.

Puakea Nogelmeier served as editor of the five-year project, a collaborative effort by some 18 people, including students, friends and other UH faculty members. Key collaborators were UH lecturer Lalepa Koga, who collected and typed materials; Sahoa Fukushima, who proofread, corrected the manuscript and helped index; and Noenoe Silva, principal compiler of an inclusive 62-page index.

The lone page in English in the 325-page text explains that Kamakau (1815-1876) wrote a landmark history of Kamehameha the Great and his kingdom. The account appeared as a serial column in two Hawaiian-language newspapers over three years, from 1866 through 1869. This book presents half of that text; a sequel will publish the second half. The book also features 15 color plates, including several little seen photos of ali'i, or royalty.
