Law Library Book Talk Series with Professor Jeffrey (Kapali) Lyon, author of The Moʻolelo Hawaiʻi of Davida Malo

The William S. Richardson School of Law Library cordially invites you to attend the third installment in our Law Library Book Talk Series with Professor Jeffrey (Kapali) Lyon, author of The Moʻolelo Hawaiʻi of Davida Malo on 10/25, 11:45 am-1 pm at the Law Library.

Professor Lyon applies the methodologies of classical philology to an early and important Hawaiian text: Davida Malo’s ethnographic work on classical Hawaiian civilization. It provides the single most important witness to Hawaiian civilization before Christianity. Davida (or David) Malo (1793-1853) was a leading Native Hawaiian historian of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Malo grew up during the period when Kamehameha I united the islands into a single kingdom. Professor Lyon’s book brings to life the fascinating Hawaiian histories and inner relationships of Malo’s time.
