Product Code: KW107


When Kamehameha unified the islands into a single kingdom, an ideal for Native Hawaiian leadership was born. What was leadership like prior to Kamehameha's rise, and why was his feat a defining moment for the culture? In Alaka‘i, Malcolm Nāea Chun combines traditions of the early chiefs with the well-recorded legacy of Kamehameha to piece together a picture of traditional leadership. Then, bringing this idea forward to the present day, he asks which qualities have been retained and which should be reintroduced.


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.
