“He pūkoʻa kani ʻāina.”

MAHALO

A coral reef that grows into an island. A person beginning in a small way gains steadily until he becomes firmly established.*

This is an exciting time in the history of Punawaiola. We have been digitizing for nearly 11 years, and in this time, a valuable repository of Hawaiian legal knowledge and learning has been created. Although Punawaiola is very small (only two part-timers), we have a big vision. Please contact us if you have any questions: punawai1@hawaii.edu.
