This chapter presents the author’s account of the lessons she learned during the course of researching and writing this volume. Despite her continued ambivalent relationship with the Mormon Church, she learned that many Polynesian Latter-day Saints have creative and inspiring relationships with the Church that include opportunities for them to express, embody, and perpetuate cultural practices. She also realized that cultural regeneration can happen in unexpected places and with unexpected alliances; and cites the ways in which Hawaiian-ness and Mormonism come together.

Keywords:   Mormons, Mormonism, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Native Hawaiian Latter-day Saints, cultural regeneration
