A Kanaka by way of beginning, a kumu ‘olelo Hawai‘i (language instructor) by means of career, and a geographer by way of education, Oliveira’s pursuits intersect on the boundary the place phrases and place-making meet her ancestral land. therefore, Ancestral Places imbues the theoretical with sensual perform. The book’s language strikes fluidly among Hawaiian and English, phrases are nimbly outlined, and the paintings of the sector is embodied: geographic layers are enacted in the textual content, new understandings created—not simply between lexica, yet amidst illustrations, charts, phrases, and poetry.  

In Ancestral Places, Oliveira reasserts either the validity of ancestral wisdom structures and their influence in modernity. Her dialogue of Kanaka geographies encompasses the complete archipelago, delivering a brand new framework in Kanaka epistemology.
