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

MAKER / MISCHIEVOUS:

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?

The Vog: Fictional Book Reading & Realistic Conversations

STORY / TELL:

Hear excerpts from THE VOG, a science fiction novel that reflects on political exclusion of local marginalized communities, and then participate in a group discussion with the authors, Aleeka and William Morgan, who shed light on intercultural communications. 

The sci-fi book with nefarious characters named John T. Aldond (an anagram of Donald John Trump), Mr. Upt Junior (an anagram of Trump Jr.), and Reverend Ivan (a reference to Ivanka), appeals to people who are anti-kakistocracy. PORTIA MAU (POPPY) is a paycheck away from being homeless. She's one of the many local Hawaiians who lost her job because of the tourism decline. The number of island visitors dropped when travelers blogged that they saw more homeless sleepers than hot surfers at the beach. When the mayor launches a new campaign to stop the homeless epidemic with job creation, everyone is hopeful that it's the silver bullet - Make Hawai'i Beautiful Again. When the mayor's plan goes awry, Poppy leads a team of women to stop an uncontrollable situation.
