Nā Wāhine Koa: A Dramatic Reading and Discussion hosted by Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘ōpua

STORY / TELL:

This performance is drawn from the recently published oral history Nā Wāhine Koa: Hawaiian Women for Sovereignty and Demilitarization. The book documents the political lives of four wāhine koa (courageous women) and leaders in Hawaiian movements of aloha ‘āina: Moanike‘ala Akaka, Maxine Kahaulelio, Terrilee Keko‘olani-Raymond, and Loretta Ritte. They narrate the ways they came into activism and talk about what enabled them to sustain their involvement for more than four decades. All four of these warriors emerged as movement organizers in the 1970s, and each touched the Kaho‘olawe struggle during this period.

While their lives and political work took different paths in the ensuing decades—whether holding public office, organizing Hawaiian homesteaders, or building international demilitarization alliances—they all maintained strong commitments to Hawaiian and related, broader causes for peace, justice and environmental health well into their golden years. For this performance, four women will read excerpts, weaving together these women’s narratives to create a powerful sense of aloha ‘āina and ea. The dramatic reading will be followed by a discussion with the editor Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘ōpua.
