This well-worn book is in Hawaiian Hall at Bishop Museum. After reading some the proverbs, it occurred to me that I MUST HAVE this compendium of common sense. In my view, because Hawaiians did not orginally have palapala, there is more wisdom contained from the oral traditions.

  • I write a newsletter for our local NAWIC chapter. Our current President is a niece of Mary Kawena Pukui and quotes her from time to time. So, I decided to each month run a column using Hawaiian phrases with their English translation and explanation. The newsletter has copies that go all over the country, not just in Hawaii. It was a way of sharing our culture with those readers and it was very well received. The phrases are available online at several websites, but many more are available in the book and it is really easy to use as a reference since I don't have to spend all that time online looking for just the right phrase. I also found myself getting caught up in the book and reading way beyond the phrase chosen for each month and enjoying it very much. Hawaiian wasn't a written language initially, making this reference material so much more valuable. Because of "Auntie Mary's" work, these sayings are preserved and passed on to the masses. As with all Proverbs, their wisdom should be shared for the rest of the world.

  • This book has been an excellent resource for my research/studies on my free time. This book is a collection of Hawaiian Proverbs and sayings, and each proverb is listed in its traditional Hawaiian followed by the literal translation, then a short summary of the significance of the proverb. Some proverbs make no sense until that short summary where the context of the proverb is explained.

    I've been saving up to buy this book for some time. It was never a necessity, but it was something I wanted to enrich my life and help me get in touch with my heritage. So far it has succeeded and also given me more information on life in ancient Hawaii. I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

    I would recommend this book to others who are interested in a less straightforward look at learning about Hawaiiana. The book is organized alphabetically by the first word of the proverb and not topically or by themes, which may not be as helpful for a research subject.

  • One of the best ways to learn a language and how the culture "thinks" is to learn their proverbs and colloquial sayings. This book does that. Wish I had found and read it while living in Hawaii!

  • Since I’ve purchased this book I’ve been enjoying it’s magical contents. I am a Native Hawaiian so for me its an added connection for me, one in which I’m very grateful for. Mahalo nui loa, Aloha ????

  • This is a most informative book that explains why Hawaiian language is so tricky to learn. Very insightful. A must resource for those who want to really understand the nuances of a language that didn't develop a written aspect until long after the language was being used.

  • This well-worn book is in Hawaiian Hall at Bishop Museum. After reading some the proverbs, it occurred to me that I MUST HAVE this compendium of common sense. In my view, because Hawaiians did not orginally have palapala, there is more wisdom contained from the oral traditions. This is a real treasure of Hawaiian lore which accurately captures human nature.

  • A must have for Students of Hawaiian Language and Culture! Makes a wonderful gift too!

  • This is a great book for both the study of the Hawaiian language and the Hawaiian culture. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to study about Hawai`i (language, people, customs and traditions). E ola mau ka `olelo Hawai`i. Mahalo
