“E Mau ana ka Puana Mele Inoa–Continuing Mele Inoa Traditions: King Kaumuali’i, Queen Lili’uokalani, and President Barak Obama”
Mele inoa (name songs that honor people) is a long-standing genre of Hawaiian poetry that goes back centuries. While each is personal to the honoree, there are meiwi, or poetic and stylistic devices that have continued over time. This presentation looks at three specific examples for leaders across three centuries: Kaua’i’s last sovereign, King Kaumuali’i, Hawai’i’s last monarch, Queen Lili’uokalani, and US President Barak Obama.
Please join us virtually via social media.
