Abstract:Scattered over two centuries of Hawaiian literature is a multitude of little- known and often forgotten publications depicting and analyzing ancient and modern Hawaiians and their culture. This bibliography will introduce and describe some of this body of writings to those seeking information about the Hawaiian people.
The bases for inclusion in this compilation are Hawaiian subject matter, English language format, and accessibility. Although the imprints cited were chosen irrespective of academic field or level, the selections reflect the compiler's historical bent and the publisher's discipline.
The annotations are descriptive, rather than critical, and are based on a personal examination of each text. Entries are numbered and arranged alpha¬betically by personal or corporate author, or lacking these, by title. Multiple works of an author appear chronologically. Since most of the items are in the Hawaiian Collection, there are no location symbols except for HAM, Hamilton Library collection; HHS, Hawaiian Historical Society Library; and R, Judith Rubano's Culture and Behavior in Hawaii.
Hawaiian diacritical markings—the kālele leo or macron, indicating a stressed vowel, and the 'u'ina or hamza, representing a glottal stop—are not used unless they appeared in titles.
Newspaper articles are omitted since the Index to the Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin contains numerous references from 1929 to the present. The series on Hawaiian culture that Charles Kenn wrote for the University of Hawaii newspaper, Ka Leo O Hawaii, in the early 1930s, however, is cited.
Legends are generally excluded because of the extensive listings in the Hawaii Library Association's Hawaiian Legends Index and Amos Leib's Hawaiian Legends in English. Children's books are left out. Articles from Imua I Ke Kumu, Ko Kakou, Laulima, and Mo'olelo, the local high school Foxfire journals, are included.
