"Islands and Cultures is very important in its content, voice, and coverage. Each chapter is rich with new ideas, and every author brings a different kind of evidence to explore their focal place and peoples."--Eleanor Sterling, director, Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology

"This book seeks--and at times finds--the confluence where the waters of Western knowledge and Pacific indigenous knowledge meet. Humanity's future path is there, a path by which our Mother the Earth and all of her descendants may yet thrive."--Justice Sir Joe Williams, New Zealand Supreme Court

"Islands and Cultures provides a unique contribution in demonstrating how the ideology, epistemology, and science of Polynesian worldviews are woven together to create and maintain the living universe."--Joseph P. Brewer II, University of Kansas
