Dana Naone Hall continues to advocate for the protection of coastal resources and shoreline access, as well as the preservation of historic and cultural sites.  She lives in Ha‘ikū, Maui.

This volume explores the inexhaustible relationship of the Hawaiian people to their native land.  Dana Naone Hall’s writings cover more than three decades of her political and cultural engagement in public, federal, state, and county processes.  As an activist with poetic sensibilities, Naone Hall demonstrates how meticulous analysis coupled with the power of the imagination can unlock new ways of seeing and relating to places that may not be immediately recognized as retaining profound Hawaiian elements.

This book will serve as a companion and guide to those engaged in protecting the sustained presence of Native Hawaiians on and in the land.
