Talk: Blackness, Bodies, and Kanaka Maoli Literary Nationalism

warren popolo project blk

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.
