Slice of PI-CASC Seminar Series: February
Water is essential to life. Drought, limited access to water, makes life difficult. In Hawaiʻi, with its many microclimates, how did people adapt to drought before technology? This presentation by Dr. Katie Kamelamela, Maggie Pulver, and Paul Higashino will touch on drought lessons from historical Hawaiian proverbs (ʻolelo noʻeau), stories (moʻolelo), and a chant (pule) from Kau for application by individuals, single family homes, and organizations. In the face of changing climate, managers and families are looking to ʻolelo noʻeau for guidance, as well as developing their own to guide future generations.
This will be a hybrid event: guests are encouraged to attend in-person at the Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics (HIG) building, room 210, on the UH Mānoa campus. Lunch is provided for the first 25 guests.
