Written by Daniel Kaha'ulelio, a native fisherman of the Lahaina region, this narrative originally appeared in 1902 as a series of articles in the Hawaiian language newspaper Ka Nupepa Kuokoa. Kaha'ulelio provides readers with a vast knowledge of locations, practices, methods, and beliefs of native fisher-people of the Maui region's waters.

The layout of the book places the Hawaiian and English text together on facing pages, allowing the reader to move easily from one to the other and the pages are interspersed with many photographs from the collections of the Bishop Museum Archives.

About the Author/Translator/Editor

Daniel Kaha'ulelio was born at Wailehua, Lahaina, Maui, in 1835 and was educated at local schools before entering Lahainaluna College. Upon graduating in 1855, he began teaching and was later appointed to a series of government positions and was elected a number of times to the legislature of the Hawaiian Kingdom. A respected judge of Lahaina, Kaha'ulelio was one of the few native fishermen of his time who remembered the traditional ways of fishing. His great insight into the topic stemmed from years of fishing with his father and grandparents, and twenty-five years of fishing on his own.

Mary Kawena Pukui was one of Hawaii's most prominent and well-loved Hawaiian scholars. For more than sixty years, she worked as a translator and collector of historic Hawaiian materials, and also taught the language, music and dance of traditional Hawaii.

M. Puakea Nogelmeier is an associate professor of Hawaiian language atthe University of Hawaii at Manoa. A teacher, researcher, composer, and translator, Nogelmeier is the director of Awaiaulu: Hawaiian Literature Project.
