I've named this group after the first book on Hawaiian History, by the Lahainaluna scholars (my alma mater). I'm a Hawaiian History teacher at Kamehameha Kapalama, and I'll be writing a Hawaiian History textbook next year (on sabbatical). I'd like to explore the debated areas of Hawaiian History, get leads and spread 'ike to try to uncover our history, much of which is suppressed. Please join me.
Feel free to start new discussion topics, as there are limitless areas to do so in Hawaiian history.
E komo mai kakou!

What a very interesting group. mahalo for its creation! Yes, that book Ka Mooolelo Hawaii, from Lahinaluna, is one of the famous books on Hawaiian history from missionary times. I will read the fascinating accounts of this group. Thanks again!

kākoʻo! What are those "debated areas" that intrigue you? What sort of HH text are you going to write? Who is your audience? I would love to learn more…
I'm wondering about people's views on the validity of annexation, views of the mahele - there is new information/interpretation on this, as well as other, more basic questions, like the flag debate going on here already..

My text is aimed mainly at high school juniors and seniors, but I'm hoping it could be used in introductory level Hawaiian Studies and history as well. mahalo nui for your interest and support and I hope to hear from you and others soon on some of these questions!

Aloha e 'Umi,
Yep, I know what you mean about the textbook! I'm teaching two Hawaiian history classes at UHM this semester and I've been thinking about how to go about crafting a textbook for the college level courses. We should get together some time, I'm very interested in your process and insights.
Aloha,

One thing to remember is what my tutu would say, "All historians are correct from the area they come from." Not everything was practiced universally. They were variations of language, customs, habits, etc. Aunty Pilahi told me that there were five basic dialects used in Hawaii. The missionaries eliminated many of the sounds to standardize the language to make it easir on themselves. Thus UH Hawaiian is missionary Hawaiian. Protocols varied as well; depending from what area.

Tane
Definitely true Tane, and I've been reminded of that and in turn, tell people the same thing. What was practiced in your area may not have been the same in the area I'm from. We already see this, this explains the differences in vocabulary with the language and other things.
Pololei - this is one of the reasons I wanted to start these discussions, partly so that it wouldn't become a
Kamehameha-centric history...
