Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: I want to become a teacher, so secondary education... photography and then art, and then also I would love to teach Hawaiian history or something that pertains to Hawaiian. I feel like the younger generation needs to learn these things. I think definitely making my map, [photography] had an influence... I did it in photoshop. It was like a collage of photographs of Kahuku... I also talked about the militarization of Kahuku, because they train up there in the mountains of Kahuku... I wanted to incorporate Hawaiian values... so I took the ahupuaʻa system. I started from the ocean, photographs of Kahuku beach, and then I went on to the land and the mountains and then where Nā Wai o Lewa is, and then the sky. Ahupuaʻa is the traditional system that Hawaiians used for subsistence... They had ahupuaʻa boundaries from the ocean to the mountain, so everybody that lived in one ahupuaʻa had everything that they needed from fish in the ocean to loʻi kalo to harvesting things in the mountains. It was kind of like an economy of subsistence. Writing is necessary for everything. Like in art, we write artist statements, project proposals.
