Papahana: Hawaiian historical Society Research Day
- “No ka Moe Kolohe” by Kauikeaouli in 1829
Developing Methods: (inspired by a conversation with Noelani Arista)
- Disregard Translations (for now)
- Focus on collecting relevant passages rather than indexing EVERY use
- Use Papakilo
- Use Forbes as a first step of collecting a legal chronology (Vol. 2 & 3)
Tonight i collected 20 issues of Poepoe’s Hiʻiaka. Will continue tomorrow. Hand Typing is slow but is allowing me to actually retain the moʻolelo. Iʻll still have to go back and re-read from start to finish to build more context. At this rate i can probably collect all of the Poepoe by 2/16/2017.
Questions and random thoughts:
Think about the difference between kapu & law in terms of gender, sex and desire. Read Arista Thesis for some direction on this.
*Today the Dissertation feels possible and thats a major victory for me.
