UH Press - Marie Alohalani Brown Book TalkSeptember 28, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Hamilton Library 306 or Zoom
Marie Alohalani Brown will talk about her new book Ka Po‘e Mo‘o Akua: Hawaiian Reptilian Water Deities (UH Press – January 2022). The book explores the fearsome and fascinating creatures known as mo‘o that embody the life-giving and death-dealing properties of water. Mo‘o are not ocean-dwellers; instead, they live primarily in or near bodies of fresh water. They vary greatly in size, appearing as tall as a mountain or as tiny as a house gecko, and many possess alternate forms. Mo‘o are predominantly female, and the female mo‘o that masquerade as humans are often described as stunningly beautiful. Throughout Hawaiian history, mo‘o akua have held distinctive roles and have filled a variety of functions in overlapping religious, familial, societal, economic, and political sectors.
