The Forest Returns to Kawainui

https://vimeo.com/106994123

Every morning I work on my new novel, then several times a week I’m out at the beautiful Na Pohaku forest restoration project.   After almost 2o years of volunteer work it’s finally beginning to look like something more than a sacred site that in the past was turned into a dump for cars and appliances.  Now the Department of Land and Natural Resources is making a series of videos on our progress.  At the start of this one I’m teaching a traditional chant to women from the prison, who come out twice a month for trail maintenance and do a wonderful job.
