The Power of the Steel-tipped Pen: A Lecture by Noenoe K. Silva

Presented by Native Studies Forum. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU and NYU Native American & Indigenous Students Group.

In this presentation, Noenoe K. Silva (University of Hawai’i, Mānoa) will speak on aloha ʻāina as kinship and foundation for Kanaka ontology, and how this is expressed in published writing by Joseph Kanepuu (1824-ca 1886) and Joseph Mokuohai Poepoe (1854-1913). The presentation is based on The Power of the Steel-tipped Pen: Reconstructing Native Hawaiian Intellectual History (Duke, 2017).
