Day 10. The Making of the Nation.

“For Native Hawaiians, a place tells us who we are and who is our extended family. A place gives us our history, the history of our clan, and the history of our ancestors. We are able to look at a place and tie in human events that affect us and our loved ones. A place gives us a feeling of stability and of belonging to our family–those living and those who have passed on. A place gives us a sense of well-being, and of acceptance of all who have experienced that place.” – Edward Kanahele, Introduction to Ancient Sites of O’ahu: A Guide to Hawaiian Archaeological Places of Interest by Van James (Honolulu: Bishop Museum Press, 1991), ix-xiii.
