Member Education Sessions: Kānaka Maoli Experiences

Event Description

Since the illegal annexation and occupation of the Kingdom of Hawai’i, Kānaka Maoli, Native Hawaiian peoples, have long faced unique challenges to protecting their homelands and culture. Due to their unique history and location, they are often left out of conversations when it comes to building relationships with and investing in the Indigenous peoples of what is now known as the United States.  Our moderator, Stephine “Steph” Poston, M.A. (Pueblo of Sandia), and Kānaka Maoli changemakers, Kēhau Meyer, Ku’uleinani Maunupau, and Līpoa Kahaleuahi, discuss the work of Native Hawaiian peoples and how philanthropy can better support the restoration of land and perpetuate Native Hawaiian culture.

Watch the broadcast now on NAP’s YouTube Channel and be sure to subscribe to the NAP YouTube channel for more informative and important resources on Native communities.
