We first recognize the kūpuna of generations past who have guided and sustained us;
these include all our lands and waters, as well as the beings who reside in all places
around us. While this book features the names and stories of many individuals and
communities who have enacted and fought for ea—life, breath, land, and sovereignty—
there are thousands who have engaged in and inspired Hawaiian movements. This book
honors the collective efforts of all those who have pushed Hawaiian movements for-
ward. Mai ka piʻina a ka i Kumukahi ā ka welo ʻana i Hōlanikū, mai ke kumuhonua i
luna aʻe i ka lewa lani, mahalo i poʻe ā pau.
Like the movements explored in this collection, the book itself has also been a col-
lective effort. Several people read drafts of key portions of this book. Mahalo nui to
Noenoe Silva, Terri Kekoʻolani, Joan Lander, Candace Fujikane, Dean Saranillio, Judy
Rohrer, Vince Diaz, and an anonymous reviewer secured by Duke University Press.
