Saving the Silversword: Native Species & Colonialism in Hawai’i

May 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

The Haleakalā silversword (or ‘ahinahina in Hawaiian) is one of the most striking and rare plants in Hawai‘i. Learn how efforts to save this plant have sparked a movement to preserve the islands’ unique flora while opening conversation about race, gender, and colonialism in the islands. Refreshments will be provided.

This event is free, but seating is limited—RSVP required to reserve a seat.
