Native Books Imprints
PAʻI HOU formerly known as SHORT STACK is a humble offering from Native Books. Our goal is to create community access by reprinting out-of-print and rare publications. When Native Books began in 1990 at HCDC in Hilo, our original mission was to put “good books in good hands”. PAʻI HOU continues this effort by printing and sharing those “good books.”
Kaiao Press, an imprint of Native Books, specializes in books about visual arts and culture in Hawai‘i nei, with a particular focus on deepening and widening an understanding of and compassion for the history and contemporary experiences of Kānaka Maoli and nā po‘e Hawai‘i.
