Hālāwai Kūʻokoʻa – Presentation on Native Tenant Rights

 

This is a presentation I did with Kahoʻokahi Kanuha on Kauaʻi for the Hālāwai Kūʻokoʻa, organized by Tim Reis, Donovan Cabebe, Shane Cobb-Adams and others – a kind of popular education series. Note: I did not mean to downplay the importance of gathering rights, only to emphasize the Kuleana rights that I feel have been themselves downplayed, and which constitute the true meaning of the term.

  1. Thank you for posting your Kauaʻi presentation on Hawaiian Native Tenant Rights. Thank you for speaking slowly and clearly — time for an old lady to reflect on concepts.

    I often study and research Mahele ʻĀina records for genealogical or cultural impact projects and have come to an unconscious understanding of Hawaiian land concepts just by studying Nahoa Lucasʻ land terms and reading what Hawaiian claimants and their testifiers had to say about their kuleana. But it is a big leap from there to understanding rights presented in Keanu Saiʻs wonderful thesis.

    Your talk provided me some important concepts and connections — a more “conscious” understanding of rights. Mahalo piha. I believe I will live to see a sovereign Hawaiian Kingdom.

  3. Aloha mai kaua! Mahalo nui for this post and your work I am an avid, and still learning, student of all that you have shared. Is there any way the powerpoint you used for this presentation could be made available? I am particular interested in information regarding the 2009 Supreme Court Case you speak of towards the end of your presentation. Mahalo! -Kamahana Kealoha
