Then, literary texts are introduced chronologically, highlighting the markers of their 'Hawaiianness.'<br />Pre-contact art forms such as chant and hula as well as contemporary pop music from the islands are also included in the overview.<br />The survey shows the diversity and distinctiveness of literary texts about and from Hawai'i, and seeks to provide a space for a Hawaiian literature on the literary map.
