Hawaiian Language: Past, Present, Future presents aspects of Hawaiian and its history that are rarely treated in language classes. The major characters in this book make up a diverse cast: Dutch merchants, Captain Cook’s naturalist and philologist William Anderson, ‘Ōpūkaha‘ia (the inspiration for the Hawaiian Mission), the American lexicographer Noah Webster, philologists in New England, missionary-linguists and their Hawaiian consultants, and many minor players. The account begins in prehistory, placing the probable origins of the ancestor of Polynesian languages in mainland Asia. An evolving family tree reflects the linguistic changes that took place as these people moved east. The current versions are examined from a Hawaiian-centered point of view, comparing the sound system of the language with those of its major relatives in the Polynesian triangle. More recent historical topics begin with the first written samples of a Polynesian language in 1616, which led to the birth of the idea of a widespread language family. The next topic is how the Hawaiian alphabet was developed. The first efforts suffered from having too many letters, a problem that was solved in 1826 through brilliant reasoning by its framers and their Hawaiian consultants. The opposite problem was that the alphabet didn’t have enough letters: analysts either couldn’t hear or misinterpreted the glottal stop and long vowels. The end product of the development of the alphabet—literacy—is more complicated than some statistics would have us believe. As for its success or failure, both points of view, from contemporary observers, are presented. Still, it cannot be denied that literacy had a tremendous and lasting effect on Hawaiian culture. The last part of the book concentrates on the most-used Hawaiian reference works—dictionaries. It describes current projects that combine print and manuscript collections on a searchable website. These projects can include the growing body of manuscript and print material that is being made available through recent and ongoing research. As for the future, a proposed monolingual dictionary would allow users to avoid an English bridge to understanding, and move directly to a definition that includes Hawaiian cultural features and a Hawaiian worldview.

A Dictionary of Hawaiian Legal Land-Terms is the first reference book of its kind to compile, organize, and explain critical information needed for the accurate translation and interpretation of nineteenth-century Hawaiian land-conveyance documents. Neither life-long residents nor recent newcomers should minimize the influence of Hawaii's unique history on the developments taking place in the state today. Yet for decades the study and translation of century-old documents - Royal Patents, Land Commission Awards, and deeds, to name a few - have been hampered by the lack of a comprehensive research tool. Now, in a single volume, readers have an overview of commonly used words and phrases, survey practices, and documents that were recorded in Hawaiian before the turn of the century. The book also includes Hawaii's appellate cases that have defined such terms. With the publication of A Dictionary of Hawaiian Legal Land-Terms, both professionals and non-professionals, Hawaiians and non-Hawaiians, have gained a valuable key to unlocking and understanding the past.
This book is part of the Island Alphabet Books series, which features languages and childrens' artwork from the U.S.-affiliated Pacific.

Featuring Aloha Friday's Hawaiian Words of Wisdom and Sacred Sunday's Scriptural Quotes for 365 Days
Author: Michael William Angeloh
Publisher: Independently Published
It was on July 4th of 2008, I found an up and coming Social Media Website called Facebook. I registered for my first Facebook Homepage account and within 30 days had composed a page featuring my "HAWAIIAN WORDS OF WISDOM" sayings. I immediately began receiving hundreds of likes and encouraging comments to my new page which inspired me to begin another new page entitled, "SACRED^SUNDAY WORDS OF WISDOM." This page would feature my collection of writings and Quotations which I would feature to my many friends on Facebook and then on Twitter another Social Media site posted early each Sunday morning. These early creations have been published regularly on both Fridays and Sundays ever since 2008 and are the source and inspiration for this Book. Each Friday I had posted one of my Hawaiian Words of Wisdom Quotations in both Hawaiian with the English translation. Each Sunday I had posted one of my very favorite Scriptural Quotations occasionally with a comment or personal Prayer attached. The other days of the week were inspired primarily by my own personal Quotations that I had published in my personal Newsletter entitled, "The Sacred^Sunday Journals" which went out weekly to over 6,000 subscribers along with my Sunday postings on Social Media. This new Book publication offers Daily Inspiration and features what are called, "THE FRUITS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT" Quotations. It also features the author's "HAWAIIAN WORDS OF WISDOM" as well as "SACRED^SUNDAY'S SCRIPTURAL QUOTATIONS" for 365 days, a full year. They are presented as daily reminders or what may be called "THE INSPIRATIONAL WORD FOR THE DAY." Daily "WORD STONE IMAGES" are also posted to keep the reader's attention focused upon those Spiritual attributes in each Soul's consciousness that may be reflected upon each day of ordinary time for each individual Soul's lifetime journey. The "SACRED^SUNDAY WORDS OF WISDOM JOURNAL" begins on a Sunday with Day 1 and ends on a Sunday with Day 365. My sincere desire is that each Quotation for every day of whatever year you happen to be reading this Book will warm your Heart and illuminate your mind and Soul having a human experience on a daily basis.
Haoles in Hawai‘i strives to make sense of haole (white person/whiteness in Hawai‘i) and "the politics of haole" in current debates about race in Hawai‘i. Recognizing it as a form of American whiteness specific to Hawai‘i, the author argues that haole was forged and reforged over two centuries of colonization and needs to be understood in that context. Haole reminds us that race is about more than skin color as it identifies a certain amalgamation of attitude and behavior that is at odds with Hawaiian and local values and social norms. By situating haole historically and politically, the author asks readers to think about ongoing processes of colonization and possibilities for reformulating the meaning of haole.
