This concluding chapter presents Glenn Wharton's reflection on the conservation project for the Kamehameha sculpture. As Wharton and her conservation members sudsed the sculpture and worked their brushes into the deep folds of red and yellow painted feathers, they realized how strained is their relationship with the administrators in Honolulu. Although some supported their efforts, especially after seeing Mary Tuti Baker's documentary King Kamehameha: A Legacy Renewed on public television, others remained staunchly against their participatory approach. In addition, the state continued to provide funds for maintaining the gold-leafed second cast in Honolulu, but refused local requests to help maintain the original cast.
