I have been conducting academic research of Kanaka ‘Ōiwi (indigenous Hawaiian) culture and history for sixteen years with research that focuses on identity within the Kanaka ‘Ōiwi community.
I have always been interested in identity, especially among mixed-race youth. Over time that interest has broadened to include religious identity.
My current research, a continuation of my research on identity, focuses on how the military changed the identity of Hawaiian society during the territorial period.
