This book is indeed a masterpiece written by a real King himself, his majesty the Hawaiian King David Kalakaua of the Merry Monarch from proud Hawaiian-Samoan lineage. The Hawaiian King himself proclaims the Kamehameha lineage back to the Ali'i chief from Samoa, brought over by a high priest named Pa'ao from Samoa. The Hawaiian King clearly identifies which ruling alii chief families descended from Tahiti, Society islands, Marquesas and the Ali'is who ruled big island Hawai'i from Samoa, the alii chief Pilikaeae or simply Pili. (This information is stored at the Hawaii State Archives at fact, I personally checked it out myself). The book is testament to the vast knowledge of the great Kamehameha Kings in King David Kalakaua. The written word by the Hawaiian king should be heralded as supreme for he possessed the highest of confidence, counsel, validity and security of information from his own family, advisors and educators of the finest institutions of his time. The King's book is truly of highest value and respect, very eloquent, academic and articulate. The book is highly educational and full of information, which clarify a lot about the origins of the Hawaiian people from Samoa, Tahiti and the Marquesas. Pele the volcano Goddess was of Samoan stock too from Samoa to Puna, Hawaii according to the King Kalakaua of Hawaii himself. Awesome relevations, this is a great source for understanding the birth of the Hawaiian culture and its people. The original Hawaiian people from Samoa and the Society islands. The Hawaiian King proclaims the origins of the Hawaiian people from the Polynesian navigators. A great book to fully understand the beginnings of the Hawaiian people. Written and published by the Hawaiian King himself, King David Kalakaua in 1888. Great book, full of revelations and respect. Hawaiiana, Samoana & Polynesia exposed from a royal King himself, King David Kalakaua. Indeed a masterpiece.

there is no denying this fact from folklore to undermining the connections between this two lineage of peoples that made up the early Hawaiian rulers and chiefs I sort of suspect all along the Samoans presence in Hawaiian history and culture among other polynesians also.If we don't believe King Kalakaua then I guess Capt. Cook really blinded us all with his medicine history of savages and wild natives.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
