Deals with politics of competing cultures and myths in a colonized nation. The author considers the transformation of Hawaiian culture focusing on the indigenous population rather than on the colonizers.

"[A] thought provoking account of the history of Hawai'i's indigenous people.... [Buck] examines the transformations of successive social structures and the various relationships of power and domination in Hawaiian history before and after contact with the West. Buck uses the changing contexts of the production, practice and meaning of the chant and hula, and the later emergence of Hawaiian music, to inform our understanding of the cultural and social implication of political and economic change.... Well worth reading."
