fishers of men

"If a big wave comes in, large and unfamiliar fishes will come from the dark ocean, and when they see the small fishes of the shallows they will eat them up. The white man's ships have arrived with clever men from the big countries. They know our people are few in number and our country is small, they will devour us."~
David Malo

David Malo (or Davida Malo) [1793-1853] was a leading Native Hawaiian historian of the Kingdom of Hawaii. He became a Christian minister and founded a church.
