Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall 410 Add to Calendar

From M??ili, O?ahu, Kamuela Werner is a first-year graduate student in the Applied Cultural Anthropology Program and Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program. As a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department of Ethnic Studies' Center for Oral History (COH), he assists COH Director, Dr. Davianna McGregor on the Kaho?olawe Aloha ??ina? Movement Oral History Project. The Kaho‘olawe Aloha ‘ina Movement Oral History Project aims to collect and document the unique experiences of k?puna and m?kua (elders and adults) who, from 1976 - 1994, were instrumental in stopping the bombing and military use of Kaho‘olawe. These stories will intimately inform and further preserve understandings of a pivotal moment in Native Hawaiian political, cultural, and spiritual history. Initial support for this project is provided from the Hawai‘inui?kea School of Hawaiian Knowledge through the Native Hawaiian Education Program No‘eau Grant, a federal grant of the U.S. Department of Education.
