Come join us as we learn from Kanaka Maoli and local scholars, educators, artists, activists and practitioners of Hawai‘i culture.

Contemporary Hawaiian Activism

Saturday, April 28, 2018

From the efforts to stop the bombing of Kahoʻolawe in the 1970’s to the current movement to prevent the build of the TMT on Mauna a Wākea, grass roots activism has been the catalyst for the spreading awareness of Hawai’i’s critical environmental, cultural and political issues. This presentation will take us through aspects of contemporary Kānaka Maoli activism from the Hawaiian Renaissance to today.


Lākea Trask is an educator, activist, protector of sacred sites, song-writer and hip-hop artist from a lineage of political leaders and ‘a ̄ina defenders.

Location: Kalani. 12-6860 Kalapana-Kapoho Rd. Pahaoa, Hawaii 96778
