Broad Street Books Event: Professor Kauanui Reads From "Hawaiian Blood"

Anthropology and American Studies Professor J. Kehaulani Kauanui will read from her book Hawaiian Blood: Colonialism and the Politics of Sovereignty and Indigeneity.

Hawaiian Blood: Colonialism and the Politics of Sovereignty and Indigeneity is a detailed scholarly account of how blood quantum politics has emerged as a colonial policy of the US government, a history of the contemporary legal definition of what it means to be “native Hawaiian” and how Kanaka Maoli (the Hawaiian people) contest that term, which is incommensurable with indigenous genealogical modes of reckoning identity and degrades Hawaiian sovereignty claims to land and nationhood.
