Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: [The course assignments] motivated me... I would have to pace myself and not do Candace's assignments until the very last minute because you can just see how one could get carried away in doing all the research... and by the time you know it, you've spent ten hours doing this research and have done no other homework for any other classes. Even in the huakaʻi, it was at the end of the semester. I did my huakaʻi, and as we were doing it, we found some areas of the stream that people were illegally dumping water in. And that even spurred me on cause I was like 'Oh! I wanna call Keoki Kerr and I wanna find out and I wanna ask someone if it's legal...' [A huakaʻi] is kind of like a field trip. It's taking a field trip, but you're following a specific path... For my huakaʻi, I followed the path of the stream... just following a specific path and investigating the place. Exploring it.
