Eia Hawai╩╗i Lecture Series

Location: UCB 127

A monthly lecture series aimed at developing a Hawaiian world view at UH Hilo.

Guest Speaker: Walter Echo-Hawk
"Cultural Sovereignty: The Challenges in Protecting the Cultural Side of Indigenous Life"

Walter Echo-Hawk II (Pawnee) is a Native American attorney, tribal judge, author, activist, and law professor who represents Indian tribes on important legal issues, such as treaty rights, water rights, religious freedom, prisoner rights, and repatriation rights. His career spans the pivotal years when Indian tribes reclaimed their land, sovereignty, and pride in a stride toward freedom. A Native American rights attorney since 1973, Walter has worked at the epicenter of a great social movement alongside visionary tribal leaders and has been instrumental in the passage of landmark laws such as the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (1990) and the American Indian Religious Freedom Act Amendments (1994). He litigated in many of the epic struggles and has written extensively about the rise of modern Indian nations in his groundbreaking book, In the Courts of Conqueror: The 10 Worst Indian Law Cases Ever Decided (2010 and more recently, In the Light of Justice (2013).

Echo-Hawk will be serving as the Spring 2018 Dan and Maggie Inouye Distinguished Chair in Democratic Ideals from Jan-Feb 2018. The Dan and Maggie Inouye Distinguished Chair was established to honor Senator and the late Mrs. Inouye for their lifetimes of public service on behalf of the State of Hawai╩╗i and the United States of America. The Chair is shared between two UH M─ünoa units, the William S. Richardson School of Law and the Department of American Studies in the College of Arts and Humanities on the University's M─ünoa campus. Echo-Hawk's appointment is even more fitting due to his personal and long standing relationship with Senator Inouye in their advocacy of progressive indigenous policies.
