The University of Hawaiʻi School of Law Library cordially invites you to attend the seventh installment of the Law Library Talk Story Series with Professor Candace Fujikane, author of “Mapping Abundance for a Planetary Future: Kānaka Maoli and Critical Settler Cartographies in Hawaiʻi.”
Her book is about Kānaka Maoli who have long encoded ʻike kupuna (ancestral knowledge) in moʻolelo (storied history) and mele (song). The kānāwai a ke akua (laws of the elemental forms) are introduced to lay the groundwork for the continued protection of lands and waters and to transform climate events into renewed possibilities for planetary abundance.
Please register to join us for a stirring discussion on Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 at 12 noon via zoom.
