For much of Hawaii's history, its people did not have a written language and relied on the practice of hula to keep their stories alive. In the 1820s, however, hula was banned. Hawaii's history and stories were in danger of disappearing forever with the arrival of Christian missionaries. A new form of hula eventually surfaced, and with it, a revived interest in traditional Hawaiian culture. Hula: The Heartbeat of Hawaii provides students with a comprehensive look at the history of hula and its important role in maintaining traditional Hawaiian culture. The book can also be used to teach students how to accurately sequence events as well as the correct use of proper nouns.
