Dialogue 1 Assessing the Documentary Record

The series “. . . aia i ka wai . . . ” opens with a searching assessment on what kinds of documentation currently exists. What accomplishments in documenting Hawaiian performance should we be recognizing and celebrating? Then we will consider what we can be doing to document Hawaiian music and hula knowledge for future generations. What kinds of endeavors should we be initiating or even envisioning?
