Of Blood and of the Heart: An Interview with Georgia Ka'apuni McMillen

Of Blood and of the Heart: An Interview with Georgia Ka'apuni McMillen Of Blood and of the Heart: An Interview with Georgia Ka‘apuni McMillen Cara Cilano In June of 2004, I interviewed Georgia Ka‘apuni McMillen, a Native Hawaiian writer whose work has appeared in Bamboo Ridge: The Hawaii Writers’ Quarterly, and who has published a novel, School for Hawaiian Girls. Initially published in 2002 and still available through 1st Books (Bloomington, Indiana), School for Hawaiian Girls will be re-released by Permanent Press, a publishing house in New York City, in September 2005. We met at the Kula Sandalwood Restaurant, located at an elevation of approximately 3,000 feet on the slope of Haleakalä on the island of Maui. The transcript of the interview that follows contains a discussion that weaves in and out of the specifics of her novel, a dialogic dynamic that allowed us to connect ideas of what Hawaiian identities are, the use of pid- gin and the local literary scene, and the travails of publishing (including self-publication), to McMillen’s novel and her experiences as a writer. School for Hawaiian Girls tells the story of several generations of a sin- gle Hawaiian family, the Kaluhis, whose members are both plagued and intrigued by the memory of the murder of Lydie, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Contemporary Pacific University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

Of Blood and of the Heart: An Interview with Georgia Ka‘apuni McMillen Cara Cilano In June of 2004, I interviewed Georgia Ka‘apuni McMillen, a Native Hawaiian writer whose work has appeared in Bamboo Ridge: The Hawaii Writers’ Quarterly, and who has published a novel, School for Hawaiian Girls. Initially published in 2002 and still available through 1st Books (Bloomington, Indiana), School for Hawaiian Girls will be re-released by Permanent Press, a publishing house in New York City, in September 2005. We met at the Kula Sandalwood Restaurant, located at an elevation of approximately 3,000 feet on the slope of Haleakalä on the island of Maui. The transcript of the interview that follows contains a discussion that weaves in and out of the specifics of her novel, a dialogic dynamic that allowed us to connect ideas of what Hawaiian identities are, the use of pid- gin and the local literary scene, and the travails of publishing (including self-publication), to McMillen’s novel and her experiences as a writer. School for Hawaiian Girls tells the story of several generations of a sin- gle Hawaiian family, the Kaluhis, whose members are both plagued and intrigued by the memory of the murder of Lydie,
