ʻŌlelo nane, loosely translated as Hawaiian riddles, parables, and allegories, is an indirect speech method which requires the speaker and interpreter both to have a thorough understanding of the Hawaiian Language and ideology systems. As part of the author’s research for her Master's degree in Hawaiian Language, various ‘ōlelo nane were compiled in this book then used to display possible embodiments of a single entity. This process allows for a shift in perspective, encouraging the reader to broaden their understanding of the Hawaiian Language. He ola kō ka ‘ōlelo.

This book is in Hawaiian Language, no English translation available.
