Hooulu: Our Time of Beginning


Manu Aluli Meyer, Ph.D.

Softcover, 280 pp.

Hoʻoulu marks the end of a process for Dr. Manu Meyer, a Harvard-educated, University of Hawai`i at Hilo professor of Education. With the publication of this book, Manu leaves Western construct behind and embraces Native Hawaiian and indigenous education and life models. Ho`oulu gathers her writings and ruminations on transforming information to knowledge, facts to metaphor, and sensation to contemplation. Her collected writings culminate in an unedited version of her doctoral thesis Native Hawaiian Epistemology: Contemporary Narratives.

The publication of this book marks a beginning. Manu has learned enough to know, she’s known it all along – she has a deep seated, unshakable faith in who she always was, a Hawaiian. With this vision, the world is now full of a different set of choices. Its our Hoʻoulu, our time of becoming.
