The Center for Biographical Research presents: / “The Aloha ʻĀina and the Limahana: Class and Hawaiian Nationalism at the Turn of the 20th Century”/ ʻIlima Long, Director of Education & Editor, ILWU Local 142, and PhD student, Department of Political Science, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa / Hawaiian national leaders of the late nineteenth century were members of an educated political class in Hawaiʻi, many descending from kau kau aliʻi lines. While the state of Hawaiian independence was always at the forefront of their fight, a close look at their political organizing, public debates, and professional duties brings to light a discourse around class that moves to the front of organizing in the early twentieth century. This presentation highlights some of those findings to bring forward a more complete and a more nuanced narration of Hawaiian national politics at the turn of the century. / ʻIlima Long is finishing her PhD in Political Science. She is the Education Director at the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 142. She is the President of Ka ʻAhahui Hawaiʻi Aloha ʻĀina. She lives in Makiki with her daughter who attends Ke Kula Kaiapuni ʻo Ānuenue in Pālolo Valley. / Cosponsored by Hamilton Library, the Center for Oral History, Conflict and Peace Specialist, and the Departments of American Studies, English, Ethnic Studies, History, and Political Science / Thursday, April 25 / Kuykendall 410 / 12PM to 1:15PM HST
