Other Pukui Bibliographies

These are the two bibliographies I checked this bibliography against. They have been highly informative in making sure I know what gaps exist. The "Seventy Years of Pukuiana" bibliography contains items that were authored by others, but made use of Pukui's translations or interviews with her. These have been beyond helpful and I am indebted to the compilers for these works. 


"Seventy Years of Pukuiana, 1922 - 1992." Unpublished typescript, The Committee for the Preservation and Study of Hawaiian Language, Art, and Culture, Honolulu, HI, 1992.
