Unwritten Literature of Hawaii - The Sacred Songs of the Hula

Unwrittern Literature possesses the timeless, unlimited depths and imageries of the hula tradition. Wrapped within Unwritten Literature is a bounty of life experiences, from amorous indulgences of the singing psalmists, including genealogies, reasons for exalting the chiefs, lessons of living in this land, descriptions of the characteristics and uses of flora and fauna, relationships of the living and the dead, and births and deaths of creatures of the earth.
