What does it mean to be resilient in times of Huliau?
Sept. 10th | 4:00pm -- 5:00pm
Over the summer a group of 12 ʻōiwi researchers embarked on a scientific voyage to Papahanaumokuākea Marine National Monument, marking the first time that an entire crew of ʻōiwi scientists led research in Papahānaumokuākea under a research permit. This presentation features UH Hilo ʻōiwi researchers Haunani Kāne, Lauren Kapono, Aloha Kapono, and Kainalu Steward as they share about their experiences in Papahānaumokuākea and the studies conducted throughout their huakaʻi.

Everything Ancient Was Once New
Oct. 14th | 12:30pm -- 2:00pm
In this talk, Emalani Case will discuss her book, Everything Ancient Was Once New: Indigenous Persistence from Hawaiʻi to Kahiki. Emalani weaves the past and the present together, reflecting on ancient concepts and their continued relevance to protect lands, waters, and oceans; to reexamine our responsibilities and obligations to each other across the Pacific region; and to dialogue on what it means to be Indigenous both while at home and while away. This talk will touch upon these themes while also reflecting on what inspired the book and what the book will hopefully inspire in the future.
