How the Archives are Transforming Hawaiian History

March 24, 2:30pm - 4:00pm
Honolulu Campus, Sakamaki Hall, 2530 Dole Street, A201 Add to Calendar

Professor Noelani Arista (Assistant Professor of History, UHM) will present “Waihona Palapala Kahiko: Research in a Time of Plenty,” as the third meeting of this semester's History Workshop on “Archives and the Practice of History.” Professor Arista’s talk will be followed by an informal reception, held in the History Department Lounge, Sakamaki B210.

The idea for this talk began with a conversation Professor Arista had with a colleague who offered advice on an essay "Ka Waihona Palapala Manleo: Research in a time of Plenty." After reading it he commented that the essay was just "telling people they have to be able to read the 'archives.' That's not even an argument." The aftershocks of colonialism supply our history a kind of urgency. Many kanaka maoli scholars are attempting to articulate this urgency by substituting this idea of "kuleana," but kuleana or responsibility for what settler colonists did to our aina, language, culture, and people is something we cannot shoulder. This talk will address how our work is larger than being a cheerleader for a set of papers written in a native language. It will discuss the methods and approaches that shape historical practice, arising from oral, written, and published records.
