University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter addresses the debate among the North Kohala residents on who would lead the conservation project for the Kamehameha sculpture. Most of the residents agreed that as a professional expert from outside the community, Wharton, should lead the project. Gladys Nanbu told the author that “if a doctor came in that invented the medication, he's the one that did the research, he's the one that did the study. We have to put our trust to you.” However, some wanted the state to resume caring for the sculpture instead, arguing that “if you (Wharton) have regular caretakers come, you will always have it cared for properly. To have constant care, it must be done by workers who know the business.”
