Hxstoriography of Filpina/x in Hawaiʻi: Our Movements, Archives, and Memories


“Filipina/x in Hawaiʻi: Our Movements, Archives, and Memories” is an exhibit and digital archive that tells multiple stories of Filipina/x diaspora on Oʻahu departing from settler colonial expectations by exploring alignment with Hawaiian demilitarization movements. This paper offers an interpretation of archival documents, created by Urban Babaylan (UB), Women’s Voices Women Speak (WVWS), and Decolonial Pin@y (DP), providing examples of community research that critically confront multiple layers of settler colonialism in the Philippines and Hawaiʻi, to build Filipina/x capacities to understand their relations to Kānaka Maoli history, and to engage more people in ongoing, regional demilitarization and decolonization movements.
