This collection of Nūpepa, or Hawaiian language newspaper, is available through Ulukau. This repository has a collection of historic nūpepa published between 1834 and 1948. These newspapers can provide extensive insight on Hawaiian history, language, culture, community, and much more. 


In order to really get a good scope of resources in the Nūpepa, you must be proficient in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, Hawaiian Language. Because, I am not fluent and still learning, I did not look into much Hawaiian language documents. However, there were some I looked into and some that were not so language intensive or translated into English.


There are two resources listed that do not have anything written in the description section. These are Hawaiian Language documents that would be a good place to continue this research inventory as it mentions Kukuipahu multiple times.
