The University of Hawaii at Manoa Richardson School of Law‘s Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law yesterday unveiled a new periodic publication that features papers on cutting-edge issues involving Native Hawaiian law. The papers are written after the center’s post-JD research fellows.
The publication is titled ‘Ohia and is named after a line from a chant for King Kalakaua: “gather up every bit of the basic knowledge of Hawaii” (‘ohia mai ā pau pono nā ʻike kumu o Hawaiʻi).
From a press release:
Melody MacKenzie, Director of Ka Huli Ao, explained the Center’s scholarship as resulting from a “partnership with the Native Hawaiian Legal Corporation, Kamehameha Schools, as well as support from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, and private foundation sources.”
Susan Serrano, Ka Huli Ao’s Director of Educational Development, described its published scholarship as, “advancing cutting-edge theory and concepts, fostering understanding of Native Hawaiian history, culture and social context, and linked to on-the-ground Native Hawaiian and other Indigenous justice issues.”
