Dr. Manulani Aluli Meyer
Wednesday, November 16, 2016
Moore Hall Room 323
Please join us in an intimate thoughtful conversation about the role of Mana Moana and as we face a sea of changes resulting from the recent election. Leading the conversation will be indigenous scholar and practitioner, Dr. Manulani Aluli Meyer, who serves as the UH West Oahu Director of Indigenous Education.
Manulani Aluli Meyer is the fifth daughter of Emma Aluli and Harry Meyer. Her family hails from Mokapu, Kailua, Wailuku, Hilo and Kohala on the islands of Oahu, Maui and Moku O Keawe. The Aluli ohana is a large and diverse group of scholar-activists who have spent their lives in Hawaiian education, justice, land reclamation, health, cultural revitalization, arts education, prison reform, transformational economics, food sovereignty, Hawaiian philosophy and most of all, music. Manu works in the field of indigenous epistemology and its role in world-wide awakening. Professor Aluli-Meyer obtained her doctorate from Harvard (Ed.D. 1998) by studying Hawaiian epistemology via language, history, and the clear insights of modern Hawaiian mentors. She is a world-wide keynote speaker and has published on the topic of native intelligence and its synergistic linkages to quantum sciences, transformational education, and to liberating research practices.
