Nā Hua Ea: Words of Genuine Security and Sovereignty

Poetry performances. Community discussion over ‘awa. Reports from the front line. Come learn, share and talk story about: current issues related to global militarization, Hawaiian independence, sacred spaces, & alternative futures for Hawai’i and the Pacific.

For 50 years from 1843-1893, ka Lā Ho’iho’i Ea celebrated Hawaiian national independence, and it was revived by a new generation of aloha ‘āina in 1985. We continue in this legacy of aloha ‘āina and join in building momentum toward this festive occasion. Join us in exploring the possibilities of genuine nation-building and genuine security in an evening filled with thought-provoking poetry and conversation about alternatives to increasing militarization and false forms of self-determination.
