Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This book is essentially an account of land relations and the status of women in the 1850s, based on the analysis of land records and other ethnohistorical materials. 'The Great Māhele, the land division of 1846-55, set the stage for massive land alienation among Hawaiians; dramatic changes took place in Hawaiian communities in the latter half of the nineteenth century, a period of progressive dispossession and proletarianization' (p. xvii). One of the changes that took place at this time was an apparent shift in the inheritance pattern which increasingly allowed women to hold land during the mid-nineteenth century. The above and other gender related topic form the major portion of this monograph.
