Preserving Land and Humanity through Art: An Interview Estria Miyashiro

Estria Miyashiro uses education, meditation practices, and mural painting for personal, social, and ecological empowerment.

I want to thank Estria for taking the time out of his busy schedule to enlighten me as to the power of Hawaiian land, culture, and heritage. To learn more about Estria’s great work, visit
