Schools, B. K. (1992). Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture. Retrieved from

Kamehameha Schools Press is pleased to present the 1992 edition of Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture by noted Hawaiian studies scholar Dr. Donald Kilolani Mitchell. This updated edition is the eighth printing of a book which, over the last three decades, has become an important reference for teachers and students of Hawaiian culture.The book offers a list of activities, study questions, and reading lists after each resource unit. Readers will find the unit symbols atop each page and the use of boldface type for topic headings handy when looking for specific information. Original illustrations by Nancy Middlesworth, former Kamehameha Schools graphic artist, further enhance the text.Resource Units in Hawaiian Culture is only one among many contributions that Dr. Mitchell made to the perpetuation of Hawaiian knowledge and skill. He wrote two other books, Hawaiian Games for Today (1975) and Hawaiian Treasures (1978).In addition, he wrote numerous articles for magazines, journals, and newspapers; conducted hundreds of workshops for educators; lectured to thousands of individuals; and taught and served as a guiding force in Hawaiian studies programs at Kamehameha for nearly sixty years. Before his death in 1989, Dr. Mitchell had substantially completed his fourth book, Ku Kilakila ?O Kamehameha (1993). This book documents the construction and expansion of Kamehameha's facilities at various sites over the last more than 100 years.Kamehameha Schools Press is proud to publish a work that is certain to continue to be an invaluable resource for all who seek a deeper understanding of the rich heritage of the Hawaiian people.

Many of the praiseworthy cultural accomplishments of the Hawaiian people are examined and discussed in these units. Described here are the unusual as well as the everyday features of this remarkable civilization that flourished with vigor and efficiency in the days before the life-style was changed by the introduction of foreign ways.Centuries ago seafaring adventurers from the Marquesas and Society Islands brought with them a functioning Polynesian culture when they settled in Hawai?i. The voyages to and from these southern islands ceased, perhaps some 700 years ago.
