Under-representation of Polynesian Populations in Ongoing Genetic Research:

• The first panels of common patterns of human genetic variation developed by the International HapMap Project did not include Polynesian populations.

• Unfortunately, representation of our people is also absent in the ongoing 1,000 genomes project, which aims to deepen our understanding of human genetic variation across the globe.

• Moreover, the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) CRISP grant allocation website shows that any query for grants associated with “Hawaiian” and “Genomics” over the last 10 years comes up empty.
If you share my frustration and believe the exclusion of our people is a disgrace stand up and help me organize community based genetic research to obtain equal representation for our people.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Any students interested in reinvigorating activism on campus and beyond? Check out the MANA student hui group or page on Maoli World. Meeting today at 4pm at Manoa Gardens, and regular meetings will be planned from then on.

aloha kakou,

i am working on a paper that asks, "what is the role of young college-educated hawaiians in pushing the sovereignty movement forward?" if you are interested in this topic, please post to this discussion or email me at mahalo nui loa....

aloha kākou,
you know its been several years since the first ever native hawaiian graduate student conference. i really think one is due. i tried to get one going here in hilo, but the response was luke warm. i think it was too close to the first one. i got a tremendous amount of inspiration and drive from the first one. with new phds and ma students since then i think a new conference is needed. i can help... if needed. letʻs kukakuka!

Thanks Kamaoli for setting up the graduate student meeting. We had a pretty decent turn out for our first halawai!

Aloha Kuualoha!
Yes, It think it's ok for profs, but folks should waiho mana'o if this changes. Anyway, I've been talking with some of the grad students in history and they want to meet up with other grad students in different disciplines to see if there are a bunch of folks who want to plan directed readings courses 699s. We are envisioning some interdisciplinary courses that draw upon the backgrounds of students from different departments----being mentored and taught by the best of the best from Anthro, poly sci, hawaiian studies, English/literature, Religion, etc., I want to put together a pa'ina for the end of the semester so folks can meet each other and discuss this and other issues.

aloha kakou, This is ku'ualoha ho'omanawanui. Like 'Ohu, I've completed the PhD (this past year), will be teaching grad level courses next can I hang out and kako'o?

Aloha kakou,

Are folks interested in setting up a little pa'ina at the end of the semester so that we can all meet in person, hang out and talk story?
If folks have ideas about where/when please give a shout out.

Hi Kuulei,
Ha ha, I think the definition of responsible translation will vary from translator to translator but there's a bit more of a discussion on it in the Unuhi group if you want to check it out or join in (it's been a bit dead over there lately). Indigenous methodologies sounds interesting, what kind of stuff have you been reading about it? I've been reading something called Red Pedagogy which is a pretty interesting discussion of integrating Western educational theory with Native American goals and understandings of the world. I'm just in the beginning still but it seems like something pretty interesting. Anyway, glad to meet you and hope we all have some more conversations.

me ke aloha,
