Western Legislative Impacts on Traditional Medical Practice

Location: UCB 100

Hawaiʻi’s indigenous culture and ethnic diversity have contributed to unique laws that accommodate culturally-based medical practices. Coupled with catastrophic medical events such as epidemics and leprosy, Hawaiian medical practices and needs required laws to regulate these demands. As a result, legislation has responded to the distinctive traditions of our islands, both host and introduced. The presentation discusses the demands for laws which addressed cultural medical practices such as opium, lāʻau lapaʻau, and lomilomi as well as federal recognition of our aboriginal medical traditions.
