Puakea Nogelmeier
Puakea Nogelmeier, in collaboration with Sahoa Fukushima and Kamaoli Kuwada, has reproduced the Hawaiian text in modern orthography and crafted an exacting English translation of the story and chants.

While keeping to the literal content of the language for fullness and accuracy, the translation makes every effort to present the essence—the pacing, humor, and drama—of the original.
