Visit to Hawaii and Kitchener-Waterloo
My audiobook "Kula Keiki Ali'i" did not win the Hawaii Assoc. of Recording Artists Spoken Word Grammy this year. However it was an honor to have been nominated for it.
My visit to Hawaii was constrained as I managed to jar a lower back vertebrae on a bus and had to lie on a couch for two weeks to get it to stop vibrating. Fortunately I had uploaded a bunch of books for the historical novel I am working on now "The Great Canadian Adventure: From Indian Country to Nation State" so got a lot of reading done.
Visited Kitchener/Waterloo next and had a great time. Here are some photos. The horses and buggies belong to the Old Order Mennonites who were picking up their children from school. There are props from Stratford and its costume warehouse. The highlight of the visit was to Chiefswood, the preserved home of Pauline Johnson, the great Indian poet and orator. The porcelain doll is her personal doll, Bella. The statue is of Shakespeare.
