This talk by Dr. Joyce Pualani Warren will examine texts by Prince Alexander Liholiho, Samuel Kamakau, King Kalākaua, and Queen Lili‘uokalani to trace a strand of nineteenth-century Kanaka Maoli literary nationalism which embraced figurative blackness as a means to combat settler colonial notions of physical, racial blackness as a trait that made Kānaka Maoli unfit for sovereignty. Through these texts, our kūpuna point us towards the fecundity and potential of Pō, and Kanaka Maoli constructions of blackness as a constitutive, foundational element of Indigeneity.
