From a Native Daughter: Colonialism and Sovereignty in Hawaii Revised Edition


Haunani-Kay Trask

Softcover, 272 pp.

Since its publication in 1993, From a Native Daughter, a provocative, well-reasoned attack against rampant abuse of Native Hawaiian rights, institutional racism, and gender discrimination, has generated heated debates in Hawaiʻi and throughout the world.

This revised work includes new material that builds on issues and concerns raised in the first edition: Native Hawaiian students organizing at the University of Hawaiʻi; the master plan of the Native Hawaiian self-governing organization Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi and its platform on the four political arenas of sovereignty; the 1989 Hawaiʻi declaration of the Hawaiʻi ecumenical coalition on tourism; a typology on racism and imperialism.  Brief introductions to each of the previously published essays brings them up to date and situates them in the current Native Hawaiian rights discussion.
