Noelani Goodyear-Kaʻōpua is a Kanaka ‘Ōiwi who was born and raised in Hawaiʻi. She is the author of The Seeds We Planted: Portraits of a Native Hawaiian Charter School (Minnesota, 2013), and co-editor of A Nation Rising: Hawaiian Movements for Life, Land and Sovereignty (Duke, 2014) and The Value of Hawaiʻi, 2: Ancestral Roots, Oceanic Visions (UH Press, 2014).
