Decolonization through Language Revitalization

Presentation by UH Hilo graduate student Kotaro Yogi. Growing up in modern Okinawa Island society, Kotaro was never aware of his cultural identity, indigenous Uchinaanchu. But the experiences he has had in Hawai'i have changed his ways of thinking and knowing the world. His talk is about how he witnessed the ‘Ōlelo Hawai’i Reclamation Movement and the Ryukyuan (Okinawan) diaspora's love for their roots that led him to work on his ancestral language revitalization. Part of the International Speaker Series sponsored by International Student Services and the United Nations Association-USA-Hawaii Island Chapter. Online on Zoom.
