Umi Perkins, PhD.

Kamehameha Schools Political Science

Windward Community College

June 10, Tuesday, 4:00 pm

For Hawaiians, ʻāina is kin. For settlers, it is real estate – an asset.

For both it is power.
Umi Perkins’ work looks at the theoretical basis of the land tenure system created in the 1840s and 1850s by Kauʻikeaouli and his inner circle, in particular native tenant rights and their real-world implications today for Hawaiian political revitalization and sovereignty
