INNOVATOR PROFILE

HAUNANI KAY-TRASK

Area of Expertise: Activism

"My favourite quote for people Is that 'land' in the American language means 'real estate', that which produces profit, whereas in Hawaiian it is aina, that which feeds. Now that's a perfect example of the difference. One tells you about the production of profit and one about the production of food. Those are two very different things."
