Warriors: Pu` Ali Koa explores the history of how the Hawaiians established their culture and lifestyle while also chronicling historical events of the twentieth century. While researching the history of Hawaii, author Lincoln Yamashita realized that the role of the warrior in Hawaiian history had not been properly documented. To provide a complete and accurate portrait of the warrior, he determined that it was essential to document the role of Warrior Spirit, the legacy of Hawaiian culture, and the history of the Hawaiian nation. Many of the'stories of the Hawaiian warriors have been passed down from generation to generation through oral storytelling. Yamashita has gathered the historical stories of the great warriors into this single volume. Warriors: Pu` Ali Koa documents a history that is vital to the cultural fabric of the forty-ninth state. For example, the legacy of the Hawaii Army National Guard began with the first Polynesians who originated in Southe'st Asia. The ?Ancient Ones? traveled over 2,300 miles from their homeland northward to the islands of Hawai`i. There they established a culture and language that are unique to these islands. These early warriors, and those who followed them, have made Hawai`i what it is today: beautiful, exotic, and true to their native culture and homeland.
