Abstract

the contemporary pacific · 29:1 (2017) munities and archaeologists does not exist and must not be perpetuated" (13). She also outlines the book's methodology, an ethnographic study of the field of archaeology through a series of interviews with practicing archaeologists and Kanaka Maoli stakeholders. A chapter on the history of archaeology in Hawai`i reveals that the traditional khuna kuhikuhipu`uone (priests responsible for the building of heiau [places of worship]) practiced a non-Western form of indigenous archaeology. However, the chapter principally covers the span of Western presence in the Islands, from missionary times to the present, and touches on the major institutions that now shape the profession: the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, the Department of Anthropology at the University of Hawai`i­Mnoa, and the State Historic Preservation Office. Kawelu's treatment delivers an excellent formal overview of each sector. Like the chapter on the history of archaeology in Hawai`i, the subsequent chapter on seven controversial projects serves as an excellent, if brief, overview of land and burial issues that sometimes took decades to resolve. The projects include the island of Kaho`olawe; the h-3 freeway, the construction of the Ke`eaumoku Street Walmart, Mkapu, and the Kawaihae Cave Complex, all on the island
