10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Makana Risser Chai on February 16, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book provides a wonderful foundation for anyone who wants to understand ancient and present-day Hawaiian culture, traditions and spirituality. Dr. Kanahele covers Religion, Mythology, and Ritual; Space, Time, and Place; Science and Technology; Economics; Leadership and Politics; and Dynamics of Aloha. Not only does he address these in terms of past and current Hawai'i, but he offers cross-cultural insights from throughout Polynesia and the world. A Native Hawaiian who graduated from Kamehameha Schools, then went on to earn his Ph.D. from Cornell, he was described by The New Yorker as the "spiritual father" of the Hawaiian renaissance. As the author of a book from the Bishop Museum on Hawaiian traditions Na Mo'olelo Lomilomi: The Traditions of Hawaiian Massage and Healing, I cherish this book and re-read it regularly for the new insights it provides.
