Publisher Description

It is a rare privilege to sit at the feet of Hawaii's elders--to hear their stories firsthand. Such wisdom and knowledge are seldom passed beyond Hawaiian communities, but now, with this book, their expertise is available to us all. Described by The Maui News as "a brilliant book of interviews with amazing photographs," Voices of Wisdom is a book that explains Hawaiian culture through the lives of 24 Hawaiians, each an expert in some facet of Hawaiiana. Through each individual we learn about a discipline, talent or skill valued in Hawaiian culture.  These are people who have led lives that matter, and what matters most to them is to keep lit the flame of a culture that nearly died. Through their efforts, Hawaiian culture will live on into the next century.
