The idea for this mini symposium came out of discussions led by Dr. Pauline Chinn at the UH Mānoa College of Education's Department of Curriculum Studies together with Dr. Hirofumi Kato at the Center for Ainu and Indigenous Studies (CAIS) and his colleagues at the Global Station for Indigenous Studies and Cultural Diversity (GSI) at Hokkaido University.

We decided that a mini interdisciplinary symposium would be a good forum for researchers (faculty as well as students) from both institutions to learn about each other’s work related to indigeneity, sustainability, and/or resilience research and education.

Upon sending out the call for proposals back in March 2022, we received numerous submissions from Hawai‘i as well as Japan, across a diverse range of interdisciplinary research areas. All presenters were also asked to explore the intersection of all three themes in their presentations. Our hope is that this exploratory symposium paves the way for future collaborations on research and education on these topics between our institutions.
