Please join the Coe Center and the MFA in Studio Arts Program at the Institute of American Indian Arts for a discussion of ʻAi Pōhaku, Stone Eaters, a radical exhibition that recently opened at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa addressing the exclusion of Kānaka worldviews from academia in general, and specifically within the university’s Department of Art and Art History, as well as an overall lack of institutional support for Kānaka art across the Islands.
