The Value of Hawaiʻi, 2
Ancestral Roots, Oceanic Visions
"Nā kai ‘ewalu is a Hawaiian way to name our archipelago. Rather than focusing on the landmasses, this moniker references the channels that connect our islands. Similarly, the voices gathered in this book are not content to stay isolated on islands unto themselves—government, health, agriculture, Hawaiian issues, etc. In fact, they recognize that in order to meet the onslaught of challenges that we face, we need to think and work across fields and vocations. And so in this volume, we see how sustainable food production flows into leadership development; how the revitalization of fishpond technologies can go hand in hand with ecosystem restoration; how urban arts can be a basis for entrepreneurial training."
