After more than 120 years of US occupation and 200 years since the declaration of the ‘Ai Noa, which led to the near dissolution of a Hawaiian religious system, the movement to protect sacred Mauna a Wākea has catalyzed a Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiian) movement ushering in a new moment in Hawai‘i’s history. Featuring activists, scholars, and community leaders—Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘ōpua (University of Hawaiʻi, Mānoa), ‘Imaikalani Winchester (Hālau Kū Māna), and Iokepa Casumbal-Salazar (Ithaca College)—this lunch session will bring people together to converse about current efforts to create alternatives to an unsustainable US colonial system.
This venue has an elevator and is accessible for wheelchair users. Restrooms are single-stall, and all gender. If you have any access needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
