Eia Hawai╩╗i Lecture Series Presentation with Halena Kapuni-Reynolds: Ka Wahine Lei ╩╗Ula: Ruth Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani

Ruth Keanolani Kan─ühoahoa Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani was one of the most powerful Kanaka Maoli women to live in the 19th century. Within contemporary memory, she is remembered as a historical role model of Hawaiian resilience and as the ali╩╗i who intervened on behalf of the people of Hilo in 1881 when the fire god Pele nearly threatened to cover Hilo Town in lava. Within these forms of remembering Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani, her material and genealogical status is emphasized. But what of her status as a Hawaiian woman of chiefly authority?

This presentation focuses on two mo╩╗olelo (stories) surrounding Ruth Keanolani Kan─ühoahoa Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani's life. The first deals with the story of her birth and her life with Ka╩╗ahumanu in the late 1820s. The second mo╩╗olelo (re)tells the story of Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani's visit to Hilo in 1881.

Through Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani's mo╩╗olelo, Halena will show how the rematriation of Hawaiian history and memory, i.e. the return to indigenous language archives in order to (re)interpret our past and our mo╩╗olelo in ways that foreground the experiences of women, can provide fuller and more textured descriptions of Hawaiian history.
