Description

Kōlea and the Chief’s Cloak is a modern fable that tells the true story of an ancient Hawaiian cloak and how it came to be in the Bishop Museum in Honolulu. The wisdom of the beloved Pacific golden plover, Kōlea, is wasted on a haughty young chief who loses his kingdom, and the cloak, to his powerful warrior cousin. The cousin unites the Hawaiian Islands and becomes Hawaiʻi’s greatest ruler. This book is targeted to children ages 4 to 12, but has a moral for all ages, “Beautiful plumage is most meaningful when it is earned through perseverance, humility and hard work.”

All proceeds from the sale of this book will help keep Bishop Museum Press titles for children in print.
