Historic and cultural preservation in Hawaii involves a web of relationships beyond archaeologists and the descendants of the people studied. Archaeologists and Kanaka Maoli are only two of the players in a network that includes, for example, lawmakers, developers, landowners, planners, and land use commissioners. This chapter describes interviews conducted with three groups interviewees: Kanaka Maoli, Kanaka Maoli archaeologists, and archaeologists. Qualitative interviewing was used to elicit a speaker's interpretations, experiences, and perspectives on given issues, events, or people. Both archaeologists and Kanaka Maoli presented in their own words how they interpreted and characterized the relationships between the two groups, what issues and practices they felt affected these relationships, and suggested how they wanted to see these relationships change.

Keywords:   Hawaiian archaeology, archaeologists, Native Hawaiians, Kanaka Maoli, historic preservation, cultural preservation, qualitative interviewing
