Ho‘ohuihui: Navigating the Pacific through Words
- (p.1) Introduction
Brandy Nālani McDougall
- University of Hawai'i Press
This book examines the aesthetics and rhetorics of Oceania within the context of huihui, understood as the result of pooling. It explores how the boundaries between the political and the poetic, the rhetorical and the aesthetic, are often blurred within Indigenous knowledge productions. It also shows how Pacific writers and artists skillfully consider and powerfully craft their words in Indigenous and imperialist languages. The book seeks to encourage reading, writing, and seeing through a Pacific or Oceanic lens—processes that counter the framing of rhetorical and aesthetic practices as always and only in response to a colonizing West or East, which inhibits rhetorical and aesthetic sovereignty. By recognizing the rhetorical and aesthetic sovereignty of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific, the book contributes to the overturning of these hegemonic structures and the promotion of decolonization.
