Brief excerpt from interview: A basic interpretation [of kuleana] can be responsibility.... Kuleana doesn't change, but to be aware of your relation to the place, the situation, [and] the people around you... It's a vigilance that needs to happen everyday... which is why place-based work needs to happen on a regular basis because relationships change because place changes. We change. When you pay... more nuance to place, you become a better person for it.
