He wai, e inu:
A Hawaiian librarianship symposium
To bring together stakeholders interested in cultural protocols and Indigenous description practices, our project convened Hoʻokele Naʻauao: A Hawaiian Librarianship Symposium in both 2019 and 2020. Co-sponsoring this event was our project partner, Nā Hawaiʻi ʻImi Loa.
HN 2019: Mana: Authority + Multiplicity
Hoʻokele Naʻauao 2019 was held November 20-21, 2019 at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The theme for Hoʻokele Naʻauao 2019 was "Mana: Authority and Multiplicity." Our program featured keynote presentations from Whina Te Whiu, Curator and Manager at Museum at Te Ahu (Kaitaia, Aotearoa New Zealand) and Former Project Manager for Ngā Upoko Tukutuku (Māori Subject Headings).
HN 2020: Activation of Kaiāulu
Hoʻokele Naʻauao 2020 was held virtually on November 9-10, 2020. Featured speakers included Abigail Echo-Hawk, Sofia Leung, Sandra Littletree, and Lessa Kananiʻopua Pelayo-Lozada.
The theme for Hoʻokele Naʻauao 2019 was "Activation of Kaiāulu." In 2019, the lāhui Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Nation) was reawakened through the Kū Kiaʻi Mauna and Aloha ʻĀina movements. Kū Kiaʻi Mauna brought the environmental and social justice issues of Native Hawaiians to the attention of the world. Now, perhaps more than ever before, the lāhui Hawaiʻi is activated and hungry - for knowledge, for change, and for justice. We, as caretakers of Hawaiian knowledge and materials, have a responsibility to respond and become active players in this fight for justice.
