This chapter presents a “desiderata” for a Hawaiian geography, namely an expression of desire for a geography that is essential to the existence of the Hawaiian people as a unique, valuable, and productive part of contemporary life and to the perpetuation of their language, spirituality, customs, and practices. The following are characteristics that perhaps express or might be inherent in a Hawaiian geography: Hawaiian geography is about being Hawaiian; Hawaiian geography is our genealogy; Hawaiian geography is learning from land; Hawaiian geography is aloha ʻāina; and Hawaiian geography is cultural autonomy.
