What is cultural competency? And why is it important for those working in Hawaiʻi’s heritage sector? Join us as we talk about cultural competency as a framework for fostering meaningful relations between museum workers and the cultural practitioners that enrich our programs and institutions. These workshops include a panel on museum indigenization practices, as well as a talk-story with cultural practitioners across Ka Pae ʻĀina o Hawaiʻi about the challenges and opportunities of working with museums and related institutions.  The focus of this session is on Maui, Molokai, and Lanai.

Participation is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Co-sponsored by the Hawaii Museums Associations and Hawaii Tourism with institutional partners: East-West Center and the UHM Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program.
