“When I think about Pō in relation to my kuleana to Hawaiʻi and the world, I think about the importance of genealogy and my ties to the Hawaiʻi universe. Pō is the genealogical origin for Hawaiʻi and Kānaka Maoli. And this informs me that everything I am is because of those who have come before. And that everything I do will affect all those who will come after.”

Noʻeau Woo-O’Brien, Ulu Kini Program Coordinator, Hawaiʻi Community College
