Brief excerpt from interview: [This class] was a requirement for graduation. The syllabus is about the history of Hawaiʻi, but focusing on mele (songs), oli (chants), and... Hawaiian composition. What was interesting to me was... we started [the semester by learning about] the ancient days where oli was created and did a little timeline to modern and to present day. I liked that we talked about the oli or the mele and it was like [a] history [class] as well, because we talked about...what was happening and why the person... composed the mele or oli.
