Item Description

"The Polynesian Family System in Ka-'u, Hawai'i"

By E.S. Craighill Handy and Mary Kawena Pukui

Copyright 1972.

Excerpt from jacket: "Collaborating of the distinguished scholars Dr. Mary Kawena Pukui and Dr. E.S. Craighill Handy provides us with this fascinating review of traditional Hawaiian life. Manners and customs relating to birth, death, marriage, sexual practices, religious beliefs, and family relationship are all clearly described. The main sources of information were elderly Hawaiian informants of the then remote Ka'u district of the island of Hawaii. The authors write directly from their own experience in simple and jargon-free language. Their book stands as a milestone in the history of Hawaiian social studies and lore."
