The first compilation of poems by an indigenous Hawai’ian to be published in North America.

 

 

When it was first published in 1994, Light in the Crevice Never Seen was the first compilation of poems by an indigenous Hawai’ian to be published in North America. In this expanded edition readers will find achingly beautiful poems about a Native woman’s impassioned love for her land, the grief and rage that come from its destruction, and the necessity of fighting back. As Greg Young-Ing writes of this book, “Haunani-Kay Trask’s poetry sings real stories from the heart of an Indigenous Nation trivialized through the tourist trade, as the infected blanket of the 50th state spreads over the bed of their Hawai’ian homelands.”
