HWST 270 - Hawaiian Mythology: Newspaper Articles

Resources on Hawaiian mythology for HWST 270.

Getting Started

Newspapers have a long history in Hawai'i. The first newspaper published in Hawai'i was "Ka Lama Hawai'i" in 1834. Since then, there have been hundreds of newspapers published with thousands of articles spanning two centuries. Accessing the information landscape of Hawai'i's newspapers has changed drastically over the past few years. We now have databases that provide full-text access to contemporary and historic newspapers in Hawaiian and English, as well as databases that index newspaper articles.

To begin:

1. Start looking in the print and online indexes for articles
2. Once you find an article you want, look for it in the full-text newspaper databases available online or on microfilm


WCC no longer has a microfilm collection. To view articles from the Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin you will need to go to the Hawaii State Library or UH Mānoaʻs Hamilton library.
