Physically and culturally isolated from even present-day Hawai‘i, Niihau remains a land where the Hawaiian language is the mother tongue, where cultural cohesiveness is an accepted fact of life, and where traditional values of Polynesia are allowed to quietly mature through time. Now, for the first time, the rich cultural history of the island is presented—folklore, myths, legends, chants, place names, poetic sayings. Includes map, index, photographs and historical appendices.
