The Past Before Us

(Inbunden)

Beskrivning:

From the Foreword ""Crucially, past, present, and future are tightly woven in 'Oiwi (Native Hawaiian) theory and practice. We adapt to whatever historical challenges we face so that we can continue to survive and thrive. As we look to the past for knowledge and inspiration on how to face the future, we are aware that we are tomorrow's ancestors and that future generations will look to us for guidance."" - Marie Alohalani Brown, author of Facing the Spears of Change: The Life and Legacy of John Papa

The title of the book, The Past before Us, refers to the importance of ka wa mamua or "the time in front" in Hawaiian thinking. In this collection of essays, eleven Kanaka 'Oiwi (Native Hawaiian) scholars honor their mo'oku'auhau (geneaological lineage) by using genealogical knowledge drawn from the past to shape their research methodologies. These contributors, Kanaka writing from Hawai'i as well as from the diaspora throughout the Pacific and North America, come from a wide range of backgrounds including activism, grassroots movements, and place-based cultural practice, in addition to academia.

Their work offers broadly applicable yet deeply personal perspectives on complex Hawaiian issues and demonstrates that enduring ancestral ties and relationships to the past are not only relevant, but integral, to contemporary Indigenous scholarship. Chapters on language, literature, cosmology, spirituality, diaspora, identity, relationships, activism, colonialism, and cultural practices unite around methodologies based on mo'oku'auhau. This cultural concept acknowledges the times, people, places, and events that came before; it is a fundamental worldview that guides our understanding of the present and our navigation into the future.

This book is a welcome addition to the growing fields of Indigenous, Pacific Islands, and Hawaiian studies.
