ItemNo Ke Kālaiwaiwai: The Elements of 19th Century Hawaiian Economics(University of Hawaii at Manoa, 2020)This research project examines the economic policy of the Hawaiian Kingdom in the early 19th century. From the time of Kamehameha I to the reign of Kauikeaouli, the ancient Hawaiian economy was transformed into a capitalist system as foreign points of view entered Hawaiian society. This paper analyzes the elements of a capitalist economy and the approaches taken by the chiefs to lead the Hawaiian Kingdom through economic policymaking. The main topics addressed include the global economy, forms of taxation, accumulation of national debt, and the changing perceptions of land and resources over time. By examining the type of economy that changed the ancient Hawaiians’ way of life, we can better understand the capitalist economic system that continues to influence our lifestyles in Hawaiʻi today. Keywords: Hawaiian economics, Hawaiian Kingdom, waiwai
ItemKāua I Ka Ua: An Exploration of Hawaiian Waltz Mele(University of Hawaii at Manoa, 2014-09-26)Mele, the general term for Hawaiian song or chant have been guarded and preserved for innumerable generations for the simple, yet essential fact that they are crucial to the maintenance of Hawaiian lore. In the current climate of Hawaiian language revitalization and restoration efforts, great strides continue to be made in solidifying a fundamental language aptitude. Mele, in its studies and practice provide an avenue through which these fundamentals are enhanced. One significant type of mele often enjoyed, but hardly ever analyzed are Hawaiian waltz. This project seeks to look at the introduction of the waltz to Hawaiʻi beginning in the monarchy period. The objectives of this exploration into these waltzes, composed almost exclusively by native speakers of Hawaiian, are to look for certain characteristic similarities contained within the compositions including but not limited to: the construction of the mele, the presence of a chorus, word choice and complementary imagery. The mele are being curated from the repository housed at Ka Waihona A Ke Aloha-The Mele Institute of Kawaihuelani, Center for Hawaiian Language. At the culmination of this project, the goal is to have ascertained the proper acumen to produce a functional template using the information gained from the research compendium to haku (compose) an original mele. This original waltz mele will seek to incorporate the “pearls of wisdom” realized in this humbling, experiential journey.
