See you at The Value of Hawaiʻi Book Launch tomorrow!

What do we value about Hawai’i, and what needs to be done to protect what we value?
How did we get here? Three-and-a-half-day school weeks. Prisoners farmed out to the mainland. Tent camps for the migratory homeless. A blinkered dependence on tourism and the military for virtually all economic activity. The steady degradation of already degraded land. Contempt for anyone employed in education, health, and social service. An almost theological belief in the evil of taxes.

At a time when new leaders will be elected, and new solutions need to be found, the contributors to The Value of Hawai`i outline the causes of our current state and offer points of departure for a Hawai`i-wide debate on our future.

Newly released in July 2010 by UH Press, The Value of Hawai’i: Knowing the Past, Shaping the Future is a collection of twenty-nine essays on topics that range from government to tourism, transportation to homelessness, agriculture, the arts, Hawaiian sovereignty, etc. For more information on the book, please see the UH Press website.

Please join us this Sunday at Native Books, Ward Warehouse, 3­-5 pm,
to celebrate the launch of this book and increasing public discussion on the value of Hawai’i. Many of our contributors will be available for signing and talk story. There will also be ‘ono food, and live music by Jon Osorio, and we will be announcing the wide range of events we have planned for the fall.

For more information on our events, please click on the event tab at the top of this page, or call 956-3774.

Free and open to the public, family and friends are welcome.

Me ke aloha,

Craig Howes and Jon Osorio

Co-editors of The Value of Hawai‘i
