A celebration of President Obama's ties to Hawaii highlights the state's cultural traditions and includes photos from Barack Obama's childhood.

Barack Obama is the first United States President to be born in Hawaii, the Aloha State. A President from Hawaii originally distributed exclusively in that state explores the unique history and cultural traditions of President Obamas birthplace. In addition to the well-known concept of aloha, it introduces such Hawaiian concepts as kokua (to help), lokahi (unity), and ohana (family), among others, and includes quotes from Barack Obamas speeches, books, and interviews that reflect and embrace these themes.
Back matter includes a glossary.
