MYTHOLOGY
Folktales of Hawai'i
He Mau Ka’ao Hawai'i
collected and translated by Mary Kawena Puku'i and Laura C. S. Green
A selection of 50 traditional Hawaiian folktales collected, translated, and annotated by Mary Kawena Puku'i. Many of these folktales are presented both in Puku'i's original Hawaiian and in English translation. Their sequence reflects the order of traditional hula presentations, beginning with stories about the gods, followed by those of chiefs, and then tales of ordinary people. These mo`olelo--part of the culture and place that engendered them--provide entertainment as well as an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the rich cultural tradition of Hawai`i. The book features original illustrations of plants native to Puku'i's home district of Ka'u, Hawai'i, by artist Sig Zane. Reprinted and re-priced with a new four color soft cover.
