Personal statement:
I witnessed and lived a lifetime of native people struggling to form proud identities honoring multiple cultures of thoughts and beliefs. I learned that my maternal grandparents chose for my then young mother to become more American than Hawaiian during her childhood years, 1950s and 1960s. Within a generation, and with intentionality, my family lost their language and assimilated towards imminent colonization with the United States. With the guidance of my parents, I attended a school for Hawaiian children and took Hawaiian language in college. I actively engaged in Native Hawaiian Dance as a philosophy of life from childhood to present day. I planned a lifetime of work with native children toddler through mixed aged preschool and their families for the expanse of my lifetime. Our move to the continent, away from all that is familiar and true, came suddenly in 1998. Uprooting from Hawaii to Arizona was quite the cultural shock for young parents such as us, but we accepted that this opportunity was the best choice for the family. Our faith in our choices afforded opportunity for me to work at AWC. Here I continue my quest to better the quality of the world through the children.
