Title:A Letter To You, Kuʻu Moʻopuna
Authors:Lo, Nanea
Date Issued:15 Nov 2018
Abstract:I wrote this poem on the island of Molokaʻi on a huakaʻi (journey) to this place. I went with a group of amazing individuals of a cohort for a Political Science course in Indigenous Politics called Nā Koʻokoʻo, taught by Professor Noelani Goodyear-Kaʻōpua. In essence the class served as the Koʻo which means to support so the class as a whole is meant to kākoʻo one another like the walking stick koʻokoʻo. We spent a week on Molokaʻi in where we were challenged to dig deep into our experience there and formulate spoken word, poems, and to articulate our feelings and emotions. In this poem that I created during my time there I reflect on my future generations that will come before me. My knowledge of what I know now about my heritage and nation and what they will know and future generations will know. It
is a love line I created for them to know how much I love them, our ancestors, and Hawaiʻi.
