The writer, an ardent feminist and a leader in the Hawaiian sovereignty movement, often tackles an immensely difficult poetic genre, the political poem. As the titles illustrate, many of these poems record the pain and displacement of a colonized people. As in most first collections, the poems are uneven. Trask succeeds best when she combines imagery ("green chatter-chatter of coconut leaves"), her deep feeling for the land, and bilingual phrases (in Hawaiian and English).

Poetry. In an expanded edition of the first book of poetry by an indigenous Hawaiian to be published in North America, Haunani-Kay Trask describes the wounded beauty and the fiery origins of her native land. Through Trask's eyes we see a Hawai'I of living contradictions. Strange unscented trees from Asia, ill-clothed people, and miles of wire coexist alongside new-born stone, little sparkling fish, and long spears of moonlight. [Trask] carries us on a path that begins with the violence of dispossession and stolen lives, and takes us through that plundered world into a present where the women gods rise up, strong and resilient, where life is defende 'with a spear of memory' -- Linda Hogan.

Thank you so much for the quick delivery of a great book. I have one already, but I wanted to buy one to give to someone. It was perfect.

Beautiful poetry

For every Indigenous survivor of European invasion and genocide (and there are legion across this planet) writing poetry as a way to process the experience of systematic and racialized oppression over the course of multiple generations, there are at least 10, 000 white supremacists actually organizing and acting out a white superiority agenda. Detractors call Trask and her work "racist"; I recognize her as a person exhausted by generations of injustices & using words as a weapon aimed at the morally decrepit conceits of an American public whose ignorance, apathy, and hypocrisy are criminal. Trasks' "violence" is symbolic and metaphorical; the US's violence has a body count in the millions. I prefer hers any day.

Trask's work is important in the world of Native poetry. Her work is finely crafted, honed, and stunning in its passion and beauty. I am deeply honored to read her words, and they resonate deeply with her other important contributions as an educator, activist, and prose writer. Reading across Trask's work gives you a sense of the breadth and depth of her vision and her knowledge base, her theory and praxis. She is an important voice in Native Hawai'ian struggle and should be read by all folk of color concerned about our survival, that of Native peoples, and this planet. She is a living gift in our time. Thank you for the blessing(s). Aché.

Ms. Trask's writing is a strong reflection of the struggle and pain indigenous people from all over the world suffer, endure and live through. It is a pity that because of her strong rhetoric and cutting direct assessments, some refuse to acknowledge the importance, influence and role her work has expressed and manifested. I reccommend this book as a wake-up call to those who do not fear the truth.

This book of poetry was such an intense cry of awareness to all Hawaiians, and somewhat of a call to arms for all indigenous peoples across the world. Do something, is pretty much waht she's trying to say. Haunani Kay is a beautiful poet, and every poem, whether you are Hawaiian or not, is surely to appreciate. I wrote an essay for English 104 on her poem "Refusal" and I got an A...by the way! :)

How can anyone condone this racist, hateful so-called "poetry"?

From the poem "Racist White Women"
I could kick your face
Puncture both your eyes
You deserve this kind of violence
***
Just a knife slitting your tight
Little heart
***
A fist in your painted
Mouth
***
A sworn Black promise
To shadow your footsteps
Until the hearse of violence
Comes to get you.
