This work explores Hawaiian sports and their origination, asking questions such as whether the indigenous Hawaiians manufactured their own games, who were their heroes and what impact did they have on either side of the Pacific? It brings into focus their athletic achievements and other issues such as the relationship between community and sport. Also covered are inter-island rivalries, ethnic competitions, the Chinese and athletic influence from the west, and the impact of their American counterparts.
