Linda Gillette was born and raised in Palm Springs, California and is a member of The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. She met the Aikau Family while attending The University of Hawaii at Manoa in 1971. Linda has remained a close, personal friend of the Aikau Family. She now resides in Kamuela on the Big Island of Hawaii with Eddie's brother, Solomon, where they raise horses and grandchildren. "I believe it is the responsibility of those who knew Eddie to keep the Foundation pointed in the right direction as far as creating and supporting projects that would make Eddie proud."
