Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: I think what was most successful was how the moʻolelo that I found tied in to this current controversy that's going on, and then the bigger picture of using moʻolelo to combat development projects that threaten significant places. I attended all our community meetings, so it all kind of tied in very nicely, and I think that was what made my paper successful. I think success for Candance for us would be just to grow our sense of kuleana for this land and to grow aloha ʻāina and also to grow our interest and our passion in these processes like map-making and how powerful it can be to help protect these places of significance and these sacred places... I think [she would be looking for those things most in our writing].
