Say Throne

No‘u Revilla describes herself as follows: "No‘ukahau'oli is rooted in Maui, while pursuing her Cultural Studies scholarship in O‘ahu at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Her palapala is based on Native women's voices and indigenous storytelling. And like her kupuna said: "I way no‘u."

from “Say Throne”:

[occupied was occupation but not occupation that kept lady occupied]
