Kumulipo, The

"Then began the slime which established the earth, / The source of deepest darkness." Written while Lili'uokalani was imprisoned in the palace for her role in the failed counter-revolution against American rule, The Kumulipo was a groundbreaking translation of the Hawaiian creation chant. Traditionally recited during the makahiki season to celebrate the god Lono, the chant is essential to Hawaiian history.
