    It is highly recommended that international orders are made via CREDIT/DEBIT CARD over the phone as UH Hilo does not accept personal checks from abroad. Orders within Hawaiʻi and the continental U.S. may also take advantage of paying via CREDIT/DEBIT CARD, but please note the higher cost for both the textbook and shipping.

    In addition to placing a CREDIT/DEBIT CARD order via phone, CREDIT/DEBIT CARD orders can also be done online via the UH Hilo bookstore website for a limited time at the beginning of each UH Hilo semester HERE. Search for the Nā Kai ʻEwalu textbook like so:

    Term Name>Fall 14 (etc.)>Department>HAW>Course>HAW 101>HAW 101 (Alapai) *This class should then appear in the Course List category>Compare Prices on These Course Materials>Begin Price Comparison>Add a NEW or USED book to your Cart>Checkout>Start Hilo Bookstore Checkout>Checkout From This Retailer>Continue Checkout>Register Here>Create profile for Browsing and Shopping (fill in shipping and payment info, etc.)>Register>Place order.

    We hope that these methods of ordering the Nā Kai ʻEwalu textbook by Kamanā and Wilson will make the process a little easier for you, our valued haumāna.

    CONTENT NOTE: The current online lessons and sequence will vary from the recently "2012 printed version" as the "2009 draft version" of Nā Kai ʻEwalu was used to create our self-directed online lessons. However, the overall content is the same. Any grammatical questions that you may have, however, can be posted in the "Hāpai Nīnau" (Discussion Forum) located within each chapter.
