A Nation Rising chronicles the political struggles and grassroots initiatives collectively known as the Hawaiian sovereignty movement. Scholars, community organizers, journalists, and filmmakers contribute essays that explore Native Hawaiian resistance and resurgence from the 1970s to the early 2010s. Photographs and vignettes about particular activists further bring Hawaiian social movements to life. The stories and analyses of efforts to protect land and natural resources, resist community dispossession, and advance claims for sovereignty and self-determination reveal the diverse objectives and strategies, as well as the inevitable tensions, of the broad-tent sovereignty movement. The collection explores the Hawaiian political ethic of ea, which both includes and exceeds dominant notions of state-based sovereignty. A Nation Rising raises issues that resonate far beyond the Hawaiian archipelago, issues such as Indigenous cultural revitalization, environmental justice, and demilitarization.

Review:

"These are the voices of the beating heart of Kanaka Maoli resistance to the usurpation of Hawaiian land and nationhood. Strong words by good minds, the book is at once an honest reflection on the Hawaiian struggle and a motivating call to action to protect the land and waters and heritage. It is history, it is culture, it is wisdom, it is art, and it is an invaluable contribution to the literature of Indigenous resurgence."
(Taiaiake Alfred (Kahnawà:ke Mohawk), Professor of Indigenous Governance, University of Victoria)

"No other volume has addressed from so many perspectives the struggles involved in the Hawaiian sovereignty movement of the past four decades. Filled with the voices of senior Native Hawaiian scholars and activists, photos by Edward W. Greevy, telling vignettes, and an introduction that clarifies the stakes of the sovereignty movement, A Nation Rising is an invaluable resource." (Vicente M. Diaz author of Repositioning the Missionary)

“The collection of essays is particularly impressive for its intermingling of information on historical processes, ongoing economic and ownership debates (including controversies associated with biocolonialism), and prospects for future mobilization and legal/policy victories against illegal occupation and misappropriation of the Hawaiian Islands.  Quite eye opening, especially for ‘mainlanders,’ colonizers, and their descendants. . . . Highly recommended." (B. Tavakolian Choice)

“This book is a timely contribution for a generation responsive to the needs of earth and will be read widely for the empowering stories it tells." (Eric Rodrigo Meringer AlterNative 2015-06-01)

“Despite the dire situations of so many Kanaka Maoli living with the effects of mi I itary occupation, environmental destruction, mass tourism and the commodification of their culture, it is still necessary to have hope. ... This book is part of that process: an 'oha growing and learning for a new day.” (Emalani Case Asia Pacific Viewpoint)

A Nation Rising is a well-executed contribution to contemporary Hawaiian history and the wider study of indigenous movements. It is also an accessible and essential entry point for academics and nonacademics interested in Native Hawaiian activism or contemporary Hawaiian politics.” (Kealani Cook Journal of American History 2015-09-01)

"A Nation Rising is a unique resource for those who know Hawai'i primarily as a tourist destination and, equally, for those who live in the fiftieth state. A diverse collection, the volume introduces issues of activism and protest, self-determination and sovereignty, and sustenance and spirituality that contribute significantly to broader Native studies." (Judith Schachter The Canadian Journal of Native Studies 2015-01-01)

"For Kanaka Maoli . . . the anthology breathes life into a history long-hidden from us and provides a mirror in which we can see ourselves without the distortion of haole voices of 'US History.' For the rest of the world, the book is perhaps even more important, as it leaves nowhere to hide from the ugly truths of the ongoing illegal occupation of a sovereign nation, and no way to ignore the voices of the ceaseless resistance of a nation always rising." (Natalee Kehaulani Bauer Decolonization 2015-01-01)

"The editors of A Nation Rising have amply accomplished their stated aims and produced a collection that is essential reading for students and scholars of the political and cultural histories of settler colonialism, indigenous studies, and Hawaiian and related history." (Tracey Banivanua Mar Western Historical Quarterly 2015-11-01)
