Concierge.com's insider take:
The official store for Na Mea Hawaii, an organization dedicated to sharing Hawaiian culture, language, and traditions. The stock here ranges from academic books about language, history, music, hula, massage, meditation, even navigating by the stars, to fun titles on lighter subjects like how to throw a luau, how to make tropical cocktails, and how to speak pidgin English. There's a good selection of children's books, too, illustrating basic Hawaiian valuestaking care of the land, respecting nature, and the ocean, thinking about the consequences of your actions, and so on.
