Synopsis: In Change We Must, Nana Veary describes how her family, surroundings and the ways of an innately spiritual people shaped a lifetime search for the truth. At the core, binding the threads of the story, is the practice of silence and a strong belief in its power. From her canoe-building grandfather who used only the trees selected by a native forest bird, to her Christian mother who chanted in Hawaiian to the fish, Nana was set on her course from an early age. It is her journey that unfolds in these pages. Weaving stories and images from her childhood, hard-earned lessons from raising her children and an even wider span of children without a home, Nana shares the metaphysical truths that she applied every day of her life. Nana was a deeply private person and it was difficult for her to recreate and reveal her life, but in typically Hawaiian fashion, she embraces all of us in these pages with a generosity and grace that heals us and guides us home.
The book is illustrated by 16 black & white photographs of Hawaii by award-winning photographer, Franco Salmoiraghi.
About the Author: Nana Veary was born in 1908 and reared by her Hawaiian elders in an environment where language, fishing, healing, building and all aspects of life were firmly rooted in nature. It was a Hawaii in which children planted by the moon and strangers were greeted with reverence. It was a Hawaii where birds, clouds and stones spoke as clearly as people, because the silent language of nature was profoundly understood.
