Ua Mau Ke Ea: Sovereignty Endures
Ua Mau is a great example of helping understand historical traumatic events and its long-term effects on individuals and society. The book chronicles Hawaii’s history through storytelling, interviews, archival images and Hawaiian-language newspaper articles. It takes the reader on a journey from 18th century Hawai‘i under the rule of King Kamehameha I, through the 19th century of the Hawaiian Kingdom to present day Hawai‘i.
Ua Mau is filled with hundreds of footnotes and references making it an essential tool for researchers and students. The textbook and the documentary were developed to compliment each other as teaching tools for classroom instruction at both the University level and high school.
