‘Ike Kupuna: A Hawaiian Observation
Hawaiian Processes
Friday, May 30th, 8pm-10pm, EMAX

Please join us for an informative presentation on Hawaiian epistemology and the ways in which an indigenous knowledge base and psyche encourage both traditional underpinnings and modern application in its own unique “scientific” process. This presentation focuses on an approach that includes ike kūpuna, or knowledge of ones traditional past and its use in today’s modern framework.


Topics Include:

• The importance of indigenous knowing and its relationship to the natural environment.
• An Indigenous approach to gathering and documenting “data”
• The practical use and articulation of “data”
