Hūlili (bridge or ladder) brings together ancestral knowledge of the past and current issues that affect Hawaiians today. Hūlili highlights theory, practice, and research on Native Hawaiian issues from such diverse disciplines as education, health, sociology, culture, and economics. Articles from emerging and established voices emphasize the importance of native people telling native stories to preserve native values and ways of knowing.
Recent years have been a pivotal time for Native Hawaiians. As Hawaiian issues gain momentum locally and nationally, one thing is clear: The Hawaiian voice matters, and that voice is growing. Understanding and amplifying the native voice is a central objective of Hūlili.
