Where: University of Hawaii School of Law Library Lobby

Professor Lyon, Associate Professor, Department of Religion, University of Hawaii at Manoa, applies the methodologies of classical philology to an early and important Hawaiian text, Davida Malo's ethnographic work on classical Hawaiian civilization. It provides the single most important witness to Hawaiian civilization before Christianity. David (Davida ) Malo (1793-1853) was a leading Native Hawaiian historian of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Malo grew up during the period when Kamehameha I united the islands into a single kingdom. Professor Lyon’s book brings to life the fascinating Hawaiian histories and inner relationships of Malo's time.

More information about The Moʻolelo Hawaiʻi of Davida Malo can be found at http://www.hawaii.edu/religion/faculty/lyon/.

Light refreshments will be served in a first come, first served basis.
