Personal statement:
Living away from the aina has only brought me closer to the desire to learn more about who we are as a people.. It has increased my appreciation for my Hawaian heritage and the kuleana that our kupuna have left to us to malama. Native Hawaiians have a long history of being curious and wanting to expand beyond the confines of a one place or time. Our kupuna were wise in the way they lived, in the way they cherished and respected all of nature, and in the way they fostered leadership among our people. Though wrongfully overtaken, we have never lost our sovereignty. It is time for us as Native Hawaiians to come together to carry on the legacy that had been given to us by our kupuna.
