By the medical physician and author who attended Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts and served in the First Regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War, during which he was wounded three times. He served as a doctor in New York until 1878, after which he relocated to Hawaii. One of his notable efforts was the translation into English of David Malo's great work on Hawaiian lore and customs. In 1909 the Bureau of American Ethnology published his book, Unwritten Literature of Hawaii: The Sacred Songs of the Hula. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Hula Essential 2. Juni 2008
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an amazing history written as it was about to be lost forever, (Due to the shortsightedness of the missionaries to recognise the chants as the essence of the Hawai'ian people), at the turn of the century. Thanks to the insight of this son of a missionary in chronicling what he was able to find himself privy to, this vital information will live on. For anyone who is now or in the future involved in hula, this is an incredible resource of knowledge of the Hawai'ian chants, legend, and the essence of the beautiful Hawai'ian people. Another valuable resource is: Myths and Legends of Hawaii also written around the turn of the century and is also a first hand account of history.

praise for Emerson's understanding of Hawaii 8. Juni 2010
Von Jennifer S. Ho - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Emerson was the son of missionaries, and was raised among Hawaiians, becoming fluent in the language of the culture he loved. We are so fortunate to have access to these works written side by side, in English and Hawaiian, a treasure for capturing the poetry, abundant with 'kauna', or hidden meaning as imagery of nature effortlessly moves between person and place, or beautiful flower. His other book, Pele and Hiiaka, is also a beautiful read-- compared by others as profound a classic as beautiful as Homer's epic poems.

This is an excellent book for any serious hula student. It is well written and full of interesting and seldom heard meles. Recommended reading by my hula kumo and I strongly recommended as well.

Hawaiian History Only Revealed Through The Hula 1. Dezember 2010
Von Shelbi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm greatly enjoying the history of hula and Hawaii through this volume. It is a well written treasure, and is kept closely by the Bishop Museum Foundation in Hawaii, the keepers of authentic documents and items of Hawaii. Since the Hawaiians had no written language, they retold stories and sustained their history through the hula dances. The Native American Indians often kept their histories within dances as well. Only after we Americans conquered their lovely Hawaiian islands and made them a part of our vast history, did we begin to exploit their culture and riches they held dear. Then, as we still do in large part, ignore their history and turned their hula into a means of entertainment and lust. Oh, we Europeans often miss so much in our arrogance. Spending many years on Oahu as children, my sister and I were fortunate to became expert hula dancers. We immersed ourselves in the colorful culture and aloha, as it was freely shared with us. What a extremely wonderful book.
Amazon Kindle provides me the best... 15. August 2012

Amazon Kindle provides me the best...
I am a Hawaiian Studies student and had this book in hard copy... Needed a Kindle copy to carry around because this is not a book to read cover to cover... There were actually two revised editions on Kindle and I wanted to be sure not to miss anything I might need to know... So I purchased both... The quality and delivery of Amazon Kindle products is always excellent and this time was no exception...
