The Hawaiian Ethnological Notes Collection, commonly called HEN, is comprised of Hawaiian language material, most of which was translated by Mary Kawena Pukui.
This material includes articles which appeared in Hawaiian Language newspapers published between the 1860’s to approximately 1940. Some articles were translated by Thomas G. Thrum.
Other material is unattributed and would have come from various sources, possibly including verbal traditions.
