'O wai kou inoa? What's your name?

kukuna o ka la

No hea mai 'oe? Where are you from?

The genealogy o Kukuna o ka la: I was born on the bank of the Mississippi River to slaves. For five (5) generations back we were all slaves. Not even one free person was ever in my ohana. We were just happy to be slaves and not one of us ever thought about manumission or being free. None of my ohana ever even had the thought of running ever cross our minds. We were happy just to serve. Being owned by other people never cost us any sleep.

ʻO wai ke ahupuaʻa āu e noho nei? Where do you live?
