Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: I read a lot of books by Robert Louis Stevenson, Louis Beck, people like that. They're European writers, and it comes from their perspective. Pacific Islanders, they didn't really have a voice until Albert Wendt started this off. It made me have a lot of pride in who I am, where my people come from. This class helped me become a better writer to structure my ideas better.
