Courageous Conversations: Gender, Sex and Oceanic Desires Beyond the Settler Colony

  • SaVAge K'lub Headquarters 1109 Nuuanu Avenue Honolulu, HI 96817 (map)


Come sit & talk with Kahala Johnson, Joy Enomoto, No'u Revilla and Kalaniopua Young in an informal impromtu conversation meant to be a safe space to open up discussion and difficulties about desires, relations, deliriums, decolonialism, longings, the uncanny and the unseen seeking to cultivate courage to speak truth to power in ways that center around Moana (ocean), Aumakua (ancestors) and Ohana (family).

A gathering to help make sense of Pacific queer bodies beyond a humanist context, settler colonialism and rugged individualism to emody the messiness of modern Indigeneity. A collective conversation with an intention of building a stronger Oceania that is rooted and routed through bodies, desires and relations of touch that confront and shapeshift beyond coloniality. What does a courageous conversation express when we center Queer Indigeneity in an Ocanic context that refuses to settle? 

This event is free but RSVP is required.
