Item Summary

Title: Kamehameha - Waiting for a King
Authors: Ontai, Krystalynn
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: In July of 1994, I saw Hawai'i for the first time from an airplane window, high above the islands. The cultural nuances and complexities ofwhat has been termed "local culture" by many who live here were lost to me-a third grader. Unknown to myself at the time, Hawai' i, the place, would become an integral aspect of the person, the student, and the writer that I would one day become. As the daughter of an Army officer, I had traveled around the United States, yet never had I set eyes on such a beautiful, exotic place. My parents, both born and raised in Hawai'i, settled in with ease, while I, a Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Pueblo Indian, Puerto Rican who pulled strongly from my Caucasian side, found no place here.
