We are excited to announce our next Virtual Kahaukani Conversations coming up on Thursday, May 19 with Pinay scholar and educator Shannon Cristobal.
Her presentation will look at the stories of Pinay women and their foodways during the plantation era and beyond. These stories can illuminate the ways in which history, culture, and household knowledge or informal knowledge are vital forms of education. Women’s work has been used as a colonizing agent through domestic science education that aimed to remove the culture and knowledge of the Filipino people. Ms. Cristobal’s research is aimed at recovering this particular knowledge to aid in the decolonizing process and healing for Filipina/o/x today and for future generations.
Kahaukani Conversations is made possible with support from:
Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority’s Kūkulu Ola Program, administered by the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation
