Indigenous Nation Sovereignty with Brandon Makaawaawa
Sep 25 @ 07:00PM - 08:30PM
Join us for an exceptional evening live from The Sanctuary land with Brandon Makaawaawa, the Vice President of the independent Nation of Hawaii.
Brandon is coming to visit our land for a few days and we wanted to give everyone the opportunity to meet him and experience his wisdom.
In this 2-hour live discussion we will explore the Indigenous Nation Sovereignty of Hawai and the Hawaiian people by exploring the consequences of colonialism on the culture and ecology of the island. In this powerful discussion with Brandon Makaawaawa we will try to better understand the complexities and opportunities of sovereignty restoration and the unique project of Puuhonua O Waimanalo.
What can we learn from this particular project for the general goal of restoring Native sovereignty, how to navigate the complexity of the capitalistic and political systems, and how this ecological, social and political project can be a frame for the general modeling of a different ways to grow together in the midst of climate collapse and the restoration of social & economical justice.
Brandon Makaawaawa is the Vice President of the independent Nation of Hawaii. He assists President Dennis Bumpy Kanahele in the day-to-day operations of Puuhonua O Waimanalo, the Nations sovereign land base in which they are restoring the ancient and modern technology-enabled Ahupuaa ecosystem.
