Known for her incredibly strong voice and fierce love for her people and land of Hawaii, Dr. Haunani-Kay Trask was a force to be reckoned with. She is one of the founders of Hawaii’s sovereignty movement who inspired generations of Kanaka Maoli to speak up and take back space in academia, politics and the cultural landscape. She was an author, poet, activist, professor and founder of Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies. Trask passed away on July 3, 2021 at the age of 71. We’ll remember her accomplishments.
