Abstract:Hospitality is a common value within our communities in Hawaiʻi, but it takes on a
different form within the hospitality industry. This thesis examines hoʻokipa, or hospitality, in
three traditional Hawaiian stories found in the Hawaiian language sources through comparison of
examples of interactions between characters. The three stories examined are: Lāʻieikawai, which
was printed 1863 in book form; Puakaʻōhelo, which was printed in the newspaper Nupepa
Kuokoa in the years 1893-1894; and Mākālei which was printed in the newspaper Ka Hoku o
Hawaii in 1928. From these examples, I attempt to draw conclusions on traditional Hawaiian
hospitality and how it may be reincorporated into our Hawaiian language communities based on
research and support of Hawaiian language. Finally, I offer hoʻomakamaka, friendship through
hospitality, as an approach to hoʻokipa in our Hawaiian language communities and in the
hospitality industry.
