Traditional and Contemporary Hawaiian Beliefs and Practices

Posted by UH Press Marketing on 9 November 2011

No Na MamoNo Nā Mamo: Traditional and Contemporary Hawaiian Beliefs and Practices, by Malcolm Nāea Chun, is an updated and enlarged compilation of books in the acclaimed Ka Wana series, published in 2005–2010. The books, revised and presented as individual chapters, offer invaluable insights into the philosophy and way of life of Native Hawaiian culture.

“The transformation of the Ka Wana Series represents a personal triumph for the author who, convinced of the necessity for greater public understanding of Hawaiian culture, devoted many years of research to rediscovering essential elements of the traditional world view of the native Hawaiian people and the cultural practices that gave form to that view. A key message in the book is this: To learn is to understand and to understand is to know how to navigate one’s way through the intricate cultural pathways of the moment.” —Dr. Sir Sidney Hirini Moko Mead, DCNZM, FRSNZ, Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi, Whakatane, Aotearoa
