“Mahalo too for your continuing commitment to the true meanings of our culture. Our kupunas smile in appreciation as do we. Mahalo ho’i for your book. It is beautiful. I love it. It’s the kind of book that you want to share with everyone. In America, we call that kind of book a “Coffee Table” book. The kind of book that one keeps on their coffee table in the living room so whenever people come over that’s the first thing they see. You did good. The pictures are so expressive. Mahalo. Blessings to you and Kaleo” Neaulani
