Personal statement:
Info - www.unclekuching.com My Hawaiian-ness began, growing up with my Hawaiian grandmother. Things took a quantum leap when at Kamehameha - as the program called for spending one day a week working at Bishop Museum under Don Mitchell. Working under the same roof as Mary Pukui was indeed significant. Since the 1980s - I have dedicated my life to protecting and advocating for the community in which I lived, the environment, Hawaiian culture and religion, and since the mid 90s - of Mauna Kea and Pohakuloa. History, historic sites and preservation have been important - Kaniakapupu (Kauikeaoulu's summer palace, placed on historic registers) and Uluhaimalama (Lili'u's garden at Pauoa) being 2 sites I've become intimately acquainted with. From '90 to '93 - I helped Wright Bowman Jr build Hawai'iLoa, the voyaging canoe . From '02 to present - my hiking group Huaka'i i Na 'Aina Mauna has kept me busy getting to know Hawai'i island intimately. In '02 - we had the privilege of hiking from sea level on the Hamakua coast, to the summit of Mauna Kea, then down to sea level and a swim in Luahinewai (Keoua's manhood lost) on the Kona coast. Rare native plants and woods are of import.
