Comments:
June Gutmanis brings us another of her well-documented scholarly works of interest to both the layman and the researcher. This one is about the meaning and function of ancient Hawaiian prayer. As in her earlier text Kahuna La‘au Lapa‘au, Gutmanis brings forth obscure information we didn't know we had or needed. The organization of Na Pule Kahiko helps to put the pantheon of Hawaiian gods into perspective. Through man's intimate relationship with his gods and his own independence, we glimpse the high culture of early Hawaii before it became historic and civilized.
