Lilikala Kame’eleihiwa on Hawaiian Sovereignty

noe tanigawa


   The recent Scottish independence vote, with all its color and emotion, came after over 400 years in the British commonwealth.  Many Hawaiians followed the Scottish vote with interest, knowing that Department of the Interior hearings here indicate emotions do still run high over US actions in Hawai‘i just over 100 years ago.  In HPR’s continuing exploration of voices on Hawaiian sovereignty, NoeTanigawa spoke with Lilikala Kame'eleihiwa, the Director of the Center for Hawaiian Studies. 

Dr. Kame'eleihiwa has been working on land and agricultural issues through a local organization called Avakonohiki, ancestral visions of 'Aina.  Check the website for new research on Hawaiian places.

Noe Tanigawa covered art, culture and ideas for two decades at Hawaiʻi Public Radio.
