Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: One of the challenges I had in this assignment is that I don't like to write in the first person ... drilled into you in high school ... I have had a difficult time letting go of that ... even in a creative writing course ... it undermines the authority of the piece ... you always have to be careful when you use the collective language ... or absolute language ... there's a responsible way to use them and there's the arbitrary use ... 'we' as Native Hawaiian people, or 'we' as Native Hawaiian culture? ... 'For Native Hawaiians, this is an issue that x,y,z ...' as opposed to writing 'we believe this or I believe this' ...
