Haunani Kay-Trask


A Native Hawaiian professor, poet, author, leader of social and political justice, and human rights organizer, many know Dr. Haunani-Kay Trask for her unyeliding commitment to Hawai’i's land and Native people. Professor Trask descends from a long line of Native orators. Her grandfather, a Hawai’i territorial senator and her father, a lawyer and advocate for Hawaiians, were among the political figures known for their speechmaking and political contributions toward securing Native land rights in Hawai’i. Today, Professor Trask is widely considered an authority on Hawaiian political issues, as well as an internationally-known Indigenous human rights advocate. Her work has played an integral role in elevating our community and pushing us into leadership roles. She remains an important symbol of Hawaiian pride and leadership.
