Hewa: The Wrong Way of Living looks at what behaviors are considered unbecoming in a Hawaiian and why. Early Native Hawaiian scholars wrote a lot about what constituted good and bad behavior in their day as foreign influences increased. Today, the dominance of American culture in Hawai‘i forces Native Hawaiians to think carefully about how they can retain a cultural identity. This series, and especially Pono and Hewa, brings to light those traditions of Native Hawaiian culture that are essential to being Hawaiian, then and now.


This book is one of twelve short volumes of the Ka Wana series, which is part of the Pihana Nā Mamo Native Hawaiian Education Program.
