Kamaka’Ike Bruecher – Māhina 2018

Kamaka’Ike Bruecher, was a student trainee in the 2018 Māhina program.

Aloha mai. I was born and raised in Ballard, Seattle on Duwamish land. I acknowledge my ancestors from Eastern and Northern Germany, Hakka from South China, and my matrilineage from the village of Miloliʻi in Kona Hema, Hawaiʻi. I currently study Public Health and Medical Anthropology at the University of Washington, Seattle. In my journey back into my Hawaiian knowledge and identity, I look forward to returning to my islands to serve and continue my studies.
