Hawaiian Games to Play

Donald D. Kilolani Mitchell

Hardcover, 80 pp. 

This how-to reference features fifty-four traditional Hawaiian games such as Hākōkō (Hawaiian wrestling) moa pahe‘e (dart sliding), and kōnane (Hawaiian checkers). The games are intended for all ages and are appropriate for classrooms, family gatherings, makahiki, and community events. Dr. Mitchell’s carefully researched descriptions offer unique insights into Hawaiian traditions of skillfulness, intelligence, and creativity. The text—accompanied by Oliver Kinney’s lively illustrations—offers important clues about Hawaiian language, culture, social relationships, and connection to the ‘āina (nature).
