Hawaii is the most isolated landmass on the planet which is likely the reason for very rare evolutionary phenomena such as predatory caterpillars and carnivorous ice-dwelling Wekiu bugs. Hawaii's unusual influence is also manifested in unprecedented diversity of evolutionary permutations in what are, elsewhere, usually unremarkable lineages. Unfortunately, Hawaiian insects have suffered from the destruction of native habitats and introduction of invasive species, losing much of their diversity. Saving what remains of Hawaii's amazing endemic insects should be a priority and is something in which everyone can take part.
Talking Hawaii's Story is the first major book in over a generation to present a rich sampling of the landmark work of Hawaii's Center for Oral History. Twenty-nine extensive oral histories introduce readers to the sights and sounds of territorial Waikiki, to the feeling of community in Palama, in Kona, or on the island of Lanai, and even to the experience of a German national interned by the military government after Pearl Harbor. The result is a collection that preserves Hawaii's social and cultural history through the narratives of the people who lived it - co-workers, neighbors, family members, and friends. [UH Press]
The recent decisions of the Hawai'i Supreme Court show a willingness to open the courts to the Native Hawaiian community and to consider long-standing historical claims to lands and natural resources. In this talk, Prof. Melody Kapilialoha MacKenzie will analyze the most recent decisions by the Court impacting the "ceded" lands trust, the Hawaiian Home Lands trust, and Native Hawaiian traditional and customary rights. She will also examine several cases working their way through the courts that could have a profound effect on the development of Native Hawaiian law.
