“Talk­ing story with the im­pres­sive brother-sis­ter team of Donne and Chris Daw­son was a cen­ter­ing ex­pe­ri­ence—a re­minder that what mat­ters most is at the heart of things,” says writer Al­li­son Schae­fers, who in­ter­viewed the sib­lings for “Fa­mil­ial Ter­ri­tory” on page 44. “Th e third and fourth chil­dren of Beadie Kana­hele Daw­son don't re­ally look Hawai­ian de­spite pos­sess­ing a dis­tin­guished is­land pedi­gree with ties to ali‘ i and to the Hawai­ians that in­habit Ni‘ ihau, the most Hawai­ian of the isles. In out­side ap­pear­ance, the two most re­sem­ble their Cau­casian fa­ther, who moved to Hawai‘ i by way of Canada. But the way that they live shows that in­side, where it mat­ters most, they have Hawai­ian hearts that carry the col­lec­tive wis­dom of their el­ders.”
