Challenges, Opportunities, and Kuleana: Historic Preservation in Hawaii
Author(s): Regina Hilo
This is an abstract from the "Braiding Knowledge: Opportunities and Challenges for Collaborative Approaches to Archaeological Heritage and Conservation" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Working and consulting with the community is built into Hawaii’s historic preservation laws and statutes. I work for the History and Culture branch of the State Historic Preservation Division, and my main role is mitigating effects to human skeletal remains, iwi kupuna, from burial sites over 50 years old. As a division, the SHPD has many challenges and opportunities, and a kuleana, a responsibility, to protect iwi kupuna to the best of our abilities. This paper will briefly survey a few of our challenges and opportunities at the SHPD, and provide an outlook for our future.
