Kāwika Tengan (Kanaka ‘Ōiwi) is an associate professor of ethnic studies and anthropology at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, as well as the author of Native Men Remade: Gender and Nation in Contemporary Hawai‘i (Duke U, 2008). He has both researched and participated in community-based efforts to regenerate Native Hawaiian masculinities through Indigenous cultural practice. In this talk, he will describe the work carried out by the Hale Mua (Men's House) and the ‘Aha Kāne (Foundation for the Advancement of Native Hawaiian Men) and discuss the potentials and limitations that their respective projects hold for decolonizing Indigenous masculinities.
