What inspired you to create this book?
I was deeply moved to craft this book by a profound sense of duty to illuminate the struggles endured by the indigenous Hawaiian people. It reflects my unwavering commitment to shedding light on the historical injustices that continue reverberating from the illegal overthrow of Queen Liliʻuokalani. Through this work, I aim to magnify the voices of the Hawaiian community and expose the enduring injustices they face, fostering empathy and understanding among readers.

How does this book reflect on what’s going on in Hawaii now?
This book poignantly reminds us of the delicate balance between technological advancement and preserving indigenous wisdom. As society becomes increasingly entangled in the web of technology, we risk losing touch with the profound teachings and respect for life embedded in Hawaiian culture. It urges us to reevaluate our priorities and recognize that true progress lies in harmonizing modernity with the timeless wisdom of the land.

Can you speak on the injustice of Hawaiians?
The injustices inflicted upon Hawaiians are deeply entrenched in the tumultuous history of colonialism and exploitation. The usurpation of Hawaiian sovereignty, coupled with the systematic marginalization and dispossession of native lands, perpetuates a cycle of injustice that continues to afflict the Hawaiian community. It’s a stark reminder of the ongoing struggle for self-determination and cultural preservation amidst the relentless tide of modernization and corporate interests.

Please tell us a little about the characters in the book.
Within the narrative, Tutu emerges as the embodiment of ancestral wisdom and resilience, guiding four orphaned souls through the labyrinth of modern-day Hawaii. Alongside Tutu, a venerable Kahuna and the morally bankrupt governor of Hawaii weave a tale of intrigue and moral reckoning. Through their interactions, the dichotomy between tradition and modernity is vividly portrayed, offering readers a glimpse into the complex tapestry of Hawaiian society.

What does Aloha mean?
Aloha transcends mere salutations; it encapsulates the divine essence of interconnectedness and reverence for life. Beyond its superficial meanings, Aloha profoundly recognizes the inherent unity among all beings, extending beyond cultural boundaries. Embracing Aloha is to embrace the fundamental truth that we are all interconnected manifestations of the same divine consciousness, fostering a sense of harmony and respect in our interactions with the world.

People go to Hawaii because they think it’s beautiful but the truth is, you have to be invited to Hawaii.
Indeed, Hawaii extends an invitation to experience its natural beauty and embark on a spiritual journey of self-discovery and transformation. The allure of Hawaii lies not merely in its picturesque landscapes but in the vibrational resonance that beckons seekers of truth and harmony. It’s a reminder that true communion with the land requires an open heart and a willingness to honor its sacred teachings.

Can you tell us about the Energies of Hawaii?
The energies of Hawaii pulsate with a primal vitality, each island bearing its unique signature of transformation and renewal. From the majestic peaks of Mauna Kea to the crystalline waters of the Pacific, Hawaii’s landscape serves as a conduit for spiritual exploration and inner alchemy. Yet, these energies demand reverence and respect, for they are deeply intertwined with the ancient wisdom of the land and the guardianship of beings such as Madame Pele. To engage with Hawaii’s energies is to embark on a profound journey of self-discovery and communion with the divine.

What do you know about Hawaii?

From the origins of the Polynesian voyagers to the contemporary struggles for indigenous rights, Hawaii’s narrative is a tapestry of resilience and adaptation. Having been blessed with the guidance of a ninth-generation Kahuna and immersed in the vibrant tapestry of Hawaiian life, I’ve come to appreciate Hawaii not only as a geographical entity but as a living embodiment of ancestral wisdom and spiritual resonance.

When were you first introduced to Hawaii, and do you live there now?
I was introduced to Hawaii in my formative years, catalyzed by a profound resonance with its cultural and spiritual heritage. While I’ve been fortunate to traverse the globe for wisdom and understanding, Hawaii has remained a constant beacon of inspiration and solace. Though my physical presence may wander, Hawaii occupies a sacred space within my consciousness, guiding my spiritual journey.
