Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: Malama ʻāina can be literally translated as to take care of the land... It's not just a throw away phrase of hospitality or... something to put on a bumper sticker. Malama ʻāina really asks you who you are in relationship to this land because you cannot care for this land properly or respectfully if you don't acknowledge who you are to this land and how you can take care of it.; [ʻĀina cannot simply be translated to 'land'] because Kānaka Maoli have a genealogical relationship to the land. We come from the land. The land is our kin, so when you think of it as just land, or landscapes... the spiritual connection [is lost]... [We have a] deep commitment to really taking care of the land as we would [our elders].
