    GREAT presentation!! Made us fall more deeply in love with the Island and its people and culture. We had no idea of what a rich history we have here. Makes us want to truly be Kana’aina, which we will never be, but we respect those who are. Thanks for sharing your island, and your knowledge and love of it, with us (part-time residents)!
