Genealogies, Kuleana, and Unstaking Settler Colonial Claims to Hawaiʻi

Event Details

Staking Claim demonstrates the ways racialization fuels settler colonialism in the islands through an interdisciplinary analysis. It argues that the racialization of Hawaiians and the indigenization of non-Hawaiians work concurrently to enable the staking of non-Hawaiian claims to Hawai’i.

Author of Staking Claim, Judy Rohrer, grew up in Hawai’i and earned her Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa. Rohrer’s first book, Haoles in Hawai’i, was published in 2010 through the University of Hawai’i Press.
