Looking in the Hole with My Three-Prong Cocked
Cashman, Kimo Alexander
Educational Perspectives, v37 n1 p18-22 2004
This article is a collection of stories crafted in the tradition of indigenous research. At the start of each section, the author asks, "Who am I?" From the stories he chooses to share, the answer is obvious--Kimo is Kimo. His stories are Kimo, his world view is Kimo, the language he speaks is Kimo. Within each story, the author connects himself to the past, the present, and the future; and in doing so, becomes the conduit for the transfer of knowledge from one generation to another. His stories cry out to all indigenous peoples, not so much in that they detail the sufferings of peoples dispossessed, but because they talk of hope for the future and the journey that this will involve. As he contemplates this journey, the author seeks guidance from his ancestors for ways to keep the Native Hawaiian people warm and strong, to help them to overcome their fears, and to help them make good choices for their future.
