There Are No Chiefs Here: Contrasting Questions of "Marginality" in Kaupō, Maui, and the Mauna Kea Adze Quarry, Hawaiʻi Island
Author(s): Alexander Baer
This is an abstract from the "Rethinking Hinterlands in Polynesia" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
While core-periphery studies have long been employed to highlight distinctions between areas within a shared sociopolitical sphere, less articulated is what it means to actually be "peripheral." Or, for that matter, "liminal," "a hinterland," or "marginal," among others. This paper uses examples from two regions, the district of Kaupo, Maui, and the area surrounding the Mauna Kea Adze Quarry, Hawai'i, to explore the very different natures of these terms, and the ways in which they may frame very different archaeological approaches.
