Eia Hawai╩╗i - Kuaihelani

Location: Campus Center 301

"Kuaihelani: Cultural Reclamation of Midway Atoll" is third in the 2012-2013 Eia Hawai╩╗i Lecture Series and features Aulani Wilhelm (NOAA), Dr. Kalani Makekau-Whittaker (UH M─ünoa), and Hawane Rios.

Although a part of the Hawaiian Archipelago, Midway Atoll has long been disconnected from Hawai╩╗i in the psyche of most people. Its Hawaiian cultural history and significance has been forgotten along with its traditional name.

In 2011, a group of Hawaiian language scholars embarked on a journey to recover some of the cultural history of Midway, beginning with its name. A critical part of this process was a trip to Midway to connect the archival research to observations and experiences on the atoll and to re-connect that ╩╗─üina to our culture through language and ceremony.

This presentation will share the process and outcomes of this unique project developed through a partnership between K─źpuka Native Hawaiian Student Center (UH Hilo), Ka Haka ╩╗Ula o Ke╩╗elik┼Źlani (UH Hilo) and National Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA).
