NOURISHMENT: Practices of Cultural Healing

Curated by Lehuanani DeFranco. Presented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Co-sponsored by the NYU Native Studies Forum.


This gathering will bring together those who nourish our communities through film, movement, food sovereignty, education, and culture. Asian and Pacific traditions of creation and healing shift based on community needs and social relations. As we move around the globe, these grounding practices become even more significant in our daily lives. How do we continue our practices in a world that pulls us away from our cultural protocols? What was nourished inside of us that called forward the work we do today? What are we leaving behind for the next generations? Each speaker will offer a form of their practice to the audience, and a moderated discussion will follow.

Featuring artists and practitioners Anthony Aiu, Puanani Apoliona-Brown, Drew Kahuʻāina Broderick, Sancia Miala Shiba Nash, and Jana Lynne Umipig. Moderated by Lehuanani DeFranco.
