Haunani-Kay Trask is a Professor of Hawaiian Studies at the University of Hawai'i. A Native Hawaiian nationalist, she is a co-founder and activist with Ka Lahui Hawai'i, the major organization advocating Hawaiian sovereignty. Her ongoing struggle for decolonization, human rights, and self-determination for her people as well as indigenous peoples all over the world has spanned over thirty years. Dr. Trask has helped to bring international attention to the historical facts of the oppression and genocide of Native Hawaiians in Hawai'i through her teaching, activism, writing, and poetry. Her most well-known book, From a Native Daughter: Colonialism and Sovereignty in Hawai'i, is widely considered a masterpiece of contemporary resistance writing.

On this e-archive volume, Haunani-Kay Trask shares some of her perspectives on the possibilities and failings of education in the context of colonialism - past, present, and future.
