j. kehaulani kauanui and keanu sai on sovereignty, decolonisation and the un declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples

22Feb10

In a recent hour-long podcast, two presentations are reproduced from a recent seminar “`Ike: Historical Transformations: Reading Hawaii’s Past to Probe Its Future”. It can be downloaded from Indigenous Politics: From Native New England and Beyond.

The first is by Keanu Sai, a man whose work I have only recently discovered, and the second is by J. Kehaulani Kauanui, a woman whose work on the field of Hawaiian sovereignty and colonialism is outstanding.

Their panel was called, “International Routes: De-occupation, Decolonization, and the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.” The mission of the session was to discuss the modern trajectory of the Hawaiian Islands within the context of Hague Regulations on the law of occupation, the U.N. Decolonization Protocols, and the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
