While Caneland is set in the historical context of pre-statehood Hawai’i, its themes of American colonialism, exploitation of laborers, and an indigenous culture ravaged by white supremacy resonate in today’s political climate. Caneland is everything a chapbook should aspire to be: cohesive, relevant and riveting.
