Queer Pacific Indigeneity: Constructing Our Archives

September 26, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Manoa Campus, Henke Hall 325

In this talanoa/talk story panel, David Kealiʻi MacKenzie and Tagi Qolouvaki, both queer-identifying, Pacific Islanders (Native Hawaiian and Fijian-Tongan), discuss how their respective genealogies, including as activists, scholars, and writers, have informed their journeys to find and construct archives of queer pacific indigeneity. Along the way we hope to share a few poems, photographs, memories of community, and some of the many questions that guide and accompany us.

D. Kealiʻi MacKenzie is Kanaka Maoli poet, librarian, and scholar who was originally born and raised in Western Massachusetts. He received his Master of Library and Information Science in 2012 from UH Manoa is currently a graduate student with the Center for Pacific Islands Studies. His poems have appeared in Flicker and Spark: A Contemporary Queer Anthology of Spoken Word and Poetry, Assaracus: A Journal of Gay Poetry, Mauri Ola: Contemporary Polynesian Poems in English, and The Yellow Medicine Review.

Tagi Qolouvaki is Fijian-Tongan on her mother’s side and German-English on her dad’s side—altogether a very mixed, queer and feminist P.I. Born and raised in Fiji by a few beautiful men and many powerful women, she is currently a student of Pacific literature at UH Mānoa, and has had poetry published in Diasporadic 2, Mauri Ola: Contemporary Polynesian Poems in English, and The Yellow Medicine Review.
