The Start of Value of Hawaiʻi 3: Hulihia, The Turning

Value of Hawaiʻi 3: Hulihia, The Turning continues the work of the Value of Hawai’i series–bringing together collections of insightful grounded essays on the histories and futures of Hawai’i nei, and sharing this wealth of voices with our community in hopes of starting and sustaining important conversations about what we value and where we are going.

Written in the urgency and tumult of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and early shutdown, this provocative new collection contains wisdom, hard lessons, and lots of imagination for post pandemic Hawai’i futures. We invite you to enjoy the voices of our over 80 contributors, and would love to hear your response.

Mahalo to The University of Hawai’i Press and the Center for Biographical Research for producing a free digital version that has been downloaded over 9,200 times since its publication in November of 2020.

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, haʻuʻoi, 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.
