Preview

The final chapter considers Pele and Hiʻiaka moʻolelo as a foundation and reflection of Hawaiian literary nationalism today, and how this literature continues to inspire Kanaka nationalism via the continuity of our literary and performative arts. Understanding Hawaiian Literary Nationalism in its earlier formation can help us appreciate the continued production of our literature today which is inspired by the past and a continuation of our creative and intellectual traditions and understand how it supports Hawaiian nationalist efforts.
