Poetry Foundation 

“Modern Hawaiian writing is part of this resisting and reconstructing process. Consciously anticolonial, my own work is also consciously indigenous. Like most Native people, I do not perceive the world of creative writing as divided into categories of prose and poetry or fiction and nonfiction. Nor do I imagine myself crossing from political resistance into artistic creation and then back again. Life is a confluence of creativities: art is a fluid political medium, as politics is metaphorical and artistic.” Haunani-Kay Trask, “Writing in Captivity: Poetry in a Time of Decolonization”
