9780822363682: The Power of the Steel-tipped Pen: Reconstructing Native Hawaiian Intellectual History

In The Power of the Steel-tipped Pen Noenoe K. Silva reconstructs the indigenous intellectual history of a culture where—using Western standards—none is presumed to exist. Silva examines the work of two lesser-known Hawaiian writers—Joseph Ho‘ona‘auao Kanepu‘u (1824–ca. 1885) and Joseph Moku‘ohai Poepoe (1852–1913)—to show how the rich intellectual history preserved in Hawaiian-language newspapers is key to understanding Native Hawaiian epistemology and ontology. In their newspaper articles, geographical surveys, biographies, historical narratives, translations, literatures, political and economic analyses, and poetic works, Kanepu‘u and Poepoe created a record of Hawaiian cultural history and thought in order to transmit ancestral knowledge to future generations. Celebrating indigenous intellectual agency in the midst of US imperialism, The Power of the Steel-tipped Pen is a call for the further restoration of native Hawaiian intellectual history to help ground contemporary Hawaiian thought, culture, and governance.

About the Author:

Noenoe K. Silva is Professor of Indigenous Politics at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa and author of Aloha Betrayed: Native Hawaiian Resistance to American Colonialism, also published by Duke University Press.

Ngugi wa Thiong’o is the author of numerous works of fiction, poetry, plays, and criticism, most recently, Birth of a Dream Weaver.

Review:

"Noenoe K. Silva’s latest book solidifies her reputation as the leading scholar of Native Hawaiian intellectual history. This book deepens our understanding of the Indigenous knowledges and mentalities that were skillfully transcribed into written form during the nineteenth century. Silva’s work connects contemporary and ancient Native Hawaiians in a trajectory of resistance to cultural annihilation, and demonstrates through her research and her own efforts that Native Hawaiian intellectualism is rooted in the concept of Aloha Aina." (Taiaiake Alfred, author of Wasáse: Indigenous Pathways of Action and Freedom)
