Overview

Called "a brilliant book of interviews with amazing photographs" by The Maui News, this book illuminates the magic, mastery and culture of Hawaii's wisest elders.

It is a rare privilege to sit at the feet of Hawaiian elders�to hear their stories firsthand. Their wisdom and knowledge is seldom passed beyond family, but now, with this important book, their expertise is available to us all.

They are kahuna, the experts, considered the best in their fields. All are leaders of the cultural renaissance that awakened the Hawaiian spirit in recent decades.

These are 24 people who have led lives that matter, and what matters most to them is to keep lit the flame of a culture that nearly died. Through their efforts, Hawaiian culture lives on. They prompted more than a cultural rebirth, they inspired a revival of spirit.

Voices of Wisdom Hawaiian Elders Speak is a phenomenal glimpse into the Hawaiian culture. Because of this, it was a national first place winner in the Independent Publishers Award.
