By Katrina-Ann R. Kapa'anaokalaokeola Nakoa Oliveira

Ancestral Places explores the deep connections that ancestral Kanaka (Native Hawaiians) loved with their setting. It honors the mo‘olelo (historical debts) of the ancestral areas of our kupuna (ancestors), and divulges how those mo‘olelo and our relations with the ‘aina (land) tell a Kanaka experience of place.

Katrina-Ann R. Kapa‘anaokalaokeola Nakoa Oliveira elucidates a Kanaka geography and offers modern students with insights relating to conventional culture—including the ways that Kanaka make the most of cartographic performances to map our ancestral areas and maintain our mo‘olelo, akin to reciting construction money owed, using nuances embedded in language, and dancing hula.

A Kanaka by means of beginning, a kumu ‘olelo Hawai‘i (language instructor) by way of occupation, and a geographer through education, Oliveira’s pursuits intersect on the boundary the place phrases and place-making meet her ancestral land. hence, Ancestral Places imbues the theoretical with sensual perform. The book’s language strikes fluidly among Hawaiian and English, phrases are nimbly outlined, and the paintings of the sector is embodied: geographic layers are enacted in the textual content, new understandings created—not simply between lexica, yet amidst illustrations, charts, phrases, and poetry.  

In Ancestral Places, Oliveira reasserts either the validity of ancestral wisdom platforms and their influence in modernity. Her dialogue of Kanaka geographies encompasses the complete archipelago, providing a brand new framework in Kanaka epistemology.
