Intimacies: He Moʻolelo No Nā Mea Waiwai Aliʻi
Halena Kapuni-Reynolds is a Ph.D. student and Kanaka Oiwi born and raised on Hawaii Island in the Hawaiian homestead community of Keaukaha. He addressed Indigenous curation, with a focus on the ways that Kanaka Oiwi and local museum professionals marry their professional responsibilities with indigenous sensibilities when caring for alii museum collections. The talk-story, “He Moʻolelo No Nā Mea Waiwai Aliʻi: Caring for Aliʻi Museum Collections,” took place on May 30.
Iolani Palace invites you to watch their new “Nā Moʻolelo Lecture Series.” The lectures feature presentations by Hawaiian cultural experts, historians, and museum professionals that will prompt discussion of Hawaiʻi’s history and culture as well as museum practices.
