Queen Emma's Church in Kealakekua: Crossroads of Culture by Nancee Cline

Queen Emma's Church in Kealakekua: Crossroads of Culture is a collection of stories, interviews and commentary concerning the life and history of a little Anglican church in Kealakekua, 143 years old.
The Anglican denomination first came to the islands with Captain Cook, and returned officially at the urging of Queen Emma and Kamehameha IV. We know a great deal about the American missionaries and the eventual Americanization of these Hawaiian Islands, but not a lot about the British contributions. Americans won the Revolutionary War against England, and in some ways, continued to fight it out here. Kealakekua, far from the religious and political battles carried on in Honolulu, offers a simpler, quieter (nonetheless poignant and emblematic) story of life, change, and aloha in Hawaii.
This project embraces an interdisciplinary approach in a relaxed talk story style. History is not treated as a subject by itself, but is tangled up with literature, music, philosophy, attitudes, trends, conflicts, opinions. Interviewees are descendants of native Hawaiian, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Philippine, European and American families.
