In 2003, the University of Hawai'i sponsored a symposium titled "Indigenizing the University." This symposium featured indigenous scholars such as Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Graham Smith, and Taiaiake Alfred, who addressed how indigenous political theory and methods of research were necessary to support indigenous research and how changes to the university personnel structure were needed to include indigenous people at every level of the university. One central question emerged from that symposium for the author of this article: "It it possible to indigenize research theories methods, and practices within the discipline?" This essay explores selected examples of the author's ongoing development of culturally informed theories that guide the interpretation of Hawaiian orature and literature in nineteenth century Hawai'i and beyond.
