Summary
"Heart of the Sea" is the inspiring portrait of surf legend Rell "Kapoliokaʻehukai" Sunn, founding member of the Women's Professional Surfing Association and one of Hawai'i's most beloved community leaders. While known for her incredible physical power, grace and luminous beauty, it was her generous spirit and relentless works as a youth, environmental and breast cancer activist that made her an icon on the Islands. As she carved a path for women in a sport dominated by men, Sunn tragically discovered that she had breast cancer at the early age of 32. Despite the diagnosis, she continued surfing and promoting breast cancer awareness among native Hawai'ian and Pacific Islander women until her final days. Not only a moving profile of an important figure in contemporary Hawai'ian history, but an important look at Hawai'i as an integral part of America's rich cultural landscape and heritage. "Heart of the Sea" is an essential addition to courses in Asian/Pacific Islander Studies, American Studies, and Women's Health.
