Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: Hawaiʻi is a really unique place and we have an abundance of natural resources but we also have a lot of problems that come with that especially like biodiversity problems... For Hawaiian people but also for many indigenous people concepts of land ownership is really different than people who came (missionaries, colonizers) and I think in many ways the unfamiliarity with this kind of new system just changed a lot of culture and I think in many ways was used to disenfranchise indigenous people but I think yeah like you can see how it relates to Hawaiʻi because just notions of land ownership is very different than you know plots of land and you can't trespass on this front. I mean now that's like how we think of it a lot of the time, but I think it's also important that as people living here we know a different viewpoint because then you know when conflicts do come up it's kind of like you can see where they're coming from instead of just being like what are they doing trespassing on my private property.
