E welina mai nei kākou!
Welcome to the inaugural issue of Pūpū A 'O 'Ewa Native Hawaiian Arts and Literary Journal!
Pūpū A 'O ' Ewa showcases the best in original works – mele, poetry, short stories, oral histories, essays, memoirs, art, photographs, videos, animation, class projects, 'oli, hula, music -- with a unique Native Hawaiian focus from our campus and community. We provide a creative space for writers and artists that nurtures creativity, self-expression, and innovation.
These Native Hawaiian voices challenge you to see the world in new ways. Many of the works are in our 'ōlelo makuahine, our mother language. Native Hawaiian traditions of storytelling and song are ancient and deep, and these bonds are reflected in many of these modern works here in Pūpū.
It's easy to get around Pūpū A 'O ' Ewa. You may access each work through the navigation buttons across the top of each page or in the menu to the right of your screen. You can also learn about each contributor by clicking his/her name found after their work.
Call for submissions:
Pūpū A 'O 'Ewa is seeking your art and literary works of all kinds related to ke ano Hawai'i, all things Hawaiian. Submissions are accepted year round. Leeward Community College students are encouraged to submit their writing to the Ka 'Umeke Kā'eo Native Hawaiian Writing Achievement Awards.
