Details

When confronted with the question, "what is the greatest Hawaiian value?" researcher and scholar Malcolm Nāea Chun, after a very long period of consideration, decided it had to be pono. What about lokahi, aloha, ola, mahalo, or other buzz words used today to describe Native Hawaiian values? In Pono: The Way of Living, Chun explores why pono is the core value for critical Native Hawaiian thinking and decision making. He uses traditional and historical accounts to describe what pono means, how it was valued in traditional society, and the key role it has in modern Native Hawaiian society. Pono: The Way of Living is the first volume in the Ka Wana series and as such, presents the world view of Native Hawaiians.

 

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.
