Abstract: This is the transcript of an approximately 1 hour semi-structured interview by Georgia Hart with a Native Hawaiian woman who self-identifies as knowledgeable about marine macroalgae of culturally importance, or limu. This interview was performed in the home or other location suggested by the interviewee. Interviewees were identified through a process of working with students at Wai‘anae High School on leeward O‘ahu Island and asking students to interviewee family members. During the interview with family, those adult interviewees who indicated they were willing to be interviewed by the researcher were asked to provide their contact information. A total of 4 interviews are made available here. Interviews were performed in 2011 and formed part of the following M.S. thesis: "Gathering, consumption and antioxidant potential of culturally significant seaweeds on O‘ahu Island, Hawai‘i." MS Thesis, Department of Botany, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, 2012. This work was also published in Economic Botany in 2014.
