Pūʻolo refers to a bundle or container, and is used figuratively for a message or topic: kaʻu wahi pūʻolo—my small bundle or my little communication.
This is a blog about Hawaiian Religion, in particular, its continuity despite the fact that it was officially abolished in 1819 and despite massive efforts to Christianize Hawaiians in the 19th and 20th centuries. A good portion of this blog is dedicated to sharing articles on Hawaiian religion from 19th- and 20th-century Hawaiian-language newspapers and other sources. I use Papakilo Database and the electronic archive Ulukau for much of my online research. The translations I offer are very rough drafts that offer the gist of the articles for those who are unable to access Hawaiian language.
