The year 2005 has been a pivotal time for Native Hawaiians. As a community, we have come together with a heightened purpose and passion for what it means to be an indigenous people. This is critical in light of persistent legal threats to Hawaiian institutions such as Kamehameha Schools, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands. As Hawaiian issues gain momentum locally and nationally, one thing is clear: The Hawaiian voice matters, and that voice is growing. Understanding and amplifying the native voice is a central objective of Hulili: Multidisciplinary Research on Hawaiian Well-Being. This second volume of Hulili(bridge or ladder) brings together ancestral knowledge of the past and current issues that affect Hawaiians today. We lead off with the manao (ideas, thoughts) of Pualani Kanahele and Kekuni Blaisdell, shared at the 2004 Research Conference on Hawaiian Well-Being held at the Kamehameha Schools Hawai’i Campus. Other articles from emerging and established voices take readers through a spiritually and intellectually challenging terrain that goes from the sunrise at Kumukahi to the heights of Mauna Kea, from communities that are mistrustful of researchers, to the Makanalua Peninsula of Molokai, from a neonatal intensive care unit to a correctional facility at Matlock Hale, from the Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies at UHManoa to the Hawaiian Studies Program in Waianae, and from preschools on Maui to the Waitangi Tribunal of Aotearoa. A common theme that emerges in many of these pieces is the importance of native people telling native stories to preserve native values and ways of knowing. Hulili continues to assert that science is important, that Western approaches are not enough, and that Hawaiian voices and vision advance a more complete understanding of people and events. We believe the thought-provoking perspectives in this issue will elevate the indigenous voice in both volume and influence.

Kanaka means human being. Maoli means true, real, genuine. We have relearned that it also means to come from the aina, the land, and to return to the aina. Aka (yet), aina is more than lepo, the soil, for aina means “that which feeds. ” No laila, aina is Papa, our Earth Mother, including wai (all waters), kai (all seas), Ka Moananui (Oceania), and beyond. Aina is also Wakea, our Sky Father, ea (air), lani (all heavens, all suns, all moons and all stars), and beyond. Our oldest and longest mele (poetic composition; song), He Kumulipo, also tells us that from the mating of these dual primordial forces, Papa and Wakea, come everything in our sacred cosmos. Since we all have the same parents, we are all ohana (family). Since Papa and Wakea are living, everything is living, conscious, and communicating. We include the wind, rain, light, shadows, rocks, fire, and sounds. We have relearned that all of the natural elements are laa (sacred). No laila, we cannot destroy, degrade, contaminate, pollute, and waste. We must protect, conserve, preserve, restore, and sustain our laa environment for all hanauna (generations) to come. * From a talk given at the 2004 Research Conference on Hawaiian Well-Being at the Kamehameha Schools Hawaii Campus.
