Aiko Yamashiro

Author of Dear Reader: Making the Value of Hawaiʻi Together

Read this piece here

Aiko Yamashiro was raised in Kāneʻohe, Oʻahu, and is lucky to live near enough to see her mother Aileen, brother Daniel, sister Amy, niyok, kalo, haʻu ʻoi, and the Koʻolau mountains almost every day. She is also lucky during this lockdown to sometimes get to visit Okinawa, Guåhan, and other loved ones in her dreams. Aiko writes and shares poetry, admires her friends, and is thankful for song in times of joy and grief. She is the executive director of the Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities.
