In the 1890s Native Hawaiians lived through the overthrow of their sovereign kingdom by rogue American businessmen in 1893, and the annexation of their islands to the United States in 1898. Historians reading English-language sources wrote that Hawaiians did not oppose annexation. But opposition and fierce loyalty are loud and vociferous in Hawaiian-language sources. As part of the "Arts and Resistance" theme semester, this semesterʻs hula class focused on this period, and will present two original class choreographies of poetic texts from that era.

Free and open to the public.
