Celebrating Indigenous Voices Through Film
Panel Discussion - 12 pm
Film Screenings - 11 am and 130 pm
Watumull Atrium, Bishop Museum

Please join us for a panel discussion and film screenings during the Celebrate Micronesia Festival on June 15, 2024 in the Gulab & Indru Watumull Atrium at Bishop Museum.

Understanding history and culture is essential to strengthening our community's resilience and ability to change in the face of the racism and discrimination experienced by Micronesians in Hawaiʻi. Films in Chamorro language that feature stories, customs and traditions will be shown alongside the work of Indigenous Taiwanese filmmakers who tell stories about the reclamation of land and culture. Panelists Michael Q. Ceballos, Rita P. Nauta, and Sayun Simung and moderator Brilyn Aguilar, will discuss perpetuating and celebrating indigenous language and identity through the medium of film. The film screenings and panel discussion offer the community an opportunity to cultivate social justice and harmony through conversation and appreciation.

This program is open to the general public as part of the Celebrate Micronesia Festival at Bishop Museum.

Celebrating Indigenous Voices Through Film is funded by a grant from the Hawaiʻi Council for the Humanities, through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this discussion or films do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
