As Kauila, Great Mother,
I sit with your children,
down by the sea,
Transformed from turtle,
a girl human to be.
This myth, it is old,
as Polynesian guides I am told,
my ancestors brought you,
here to this shore,
giving you wisdom from ages before.
Now our children ask:
What do we give back to our Mother Earth?
My wisdoms’ response,
may you help her joyously endure.
