I Ulu I Ka 'Aina

This chapter begins with the author's recollections of driving on the road on his Harley-Davidson. The birth of his daughter, however, silenced the once satisfying roar of his Harley, tempering his at-times rebellious spirit. While he is almost certain that he will not be in the saddle of a motorcycle anytime soon, his observations of the ʻāina, and the lessons he learned from it, will develop and stay with him always. He says that the ʻāina is their our kūpuna's kupuna, the foundation of our being—a mentor, teacher, and mother for us all. In fact, the ʻāina has shaped ʻŌiwi and ʻŌiwi leadership as long as we have been a lāhui. The remainder of the chapter explores some of the ways that ʻāina inscribes itself on our being and shapes our perspectives on leadership.

Keywords:   being, leadership, ʻāina, ʻŌiwi, kupuna
