(p.127) Chapter 6 The Hui O He‘e Nalu
Waves of Resistance

Isaiah Helekunihi Walker

University of Hawai'i Press

The predominantly Native Hawaiian North Shore organization, Hui O He'e Nalu, was formed in reaction to a burgeoning, predominantly haole professional surfing industry that started on the North Shore in 1976. For Hui members, this industry threatened a Hawaiian pastime, social sanctuary, and cultural identity. As their membership grew in the late 1970s and early 1980s, their purpose remained the same: to resist the exploitation of the North Shore by haole surfers and the surfing industry. This chapter analyzes the history of the Hui O He'e Nalu. Drawing primarily from oral history interviews, it discusses how history, culture, and resistance shaped their identities. In these interviews many Hui members linked their 1970s North Shore experience to the late 1800s and the overthrow of Hawai'i's Native government.
