MĀKAU MOʻOMEHEU

Cultural Competence in Hawaiʻi's Museums

What is cultural competency? And why is it important for those of us 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.
