Pīko‘oko‘o 2018 Conference

October 5, 8:00am - 6:30pm
Mānoa Campus, East-West Center Imin Conference Center

Pīko‘oko‘o honors the importance of supporting our piko, which is grounded in Native Hawaiian traditions, customs, and practices, represented by the ‘aho creating the piko of an ‘ie‘ie basket or the rope binding the ‘iako to the ama of a canoe. The conference theme is based on the work of Noelani Goodyear-Kaʻōpua’s “Reproducing the Ropes of Resistance: Hawaiian Studies Methodologies.”

Pīkoʻokoʻo 2018 will provide a unique platform to weave projects, teaching, and research within one of four ‘aho of aloha ‘āina and to consider and extend what Hawaiian scholarship is and what it is to be a “Hawaiian Place of Learning.”
