“A Nation Rising” chronicles the political struggles and grassroots initiatives collectively known as the Hawaiian sovereignty movement. Scholars| community organizers| journalists| and filmmakers contribute essays that explore Native Hawaiian resistance and resurgence from the 1970s to the early 2010s. Photographs and vignettes about particular activists further bring Hawaiian social movements to life. The stories and analyses of efforts to protect land and natural resources| resist community dispossession| and advance claims for sovereignty and self-determination reveal the diverse objectives and strategies| as well as the inevitable tensions| of the broad-tent sovereignty movement. The collection explores the Hawaiian political ethic of ea| which both includes and exceeds dominant notions of state-based sovereignty. “A Nation Rising” raises issues that resonate far beyond the Hawaiian archipelago| issues such as Indigenous cultural revitalization| environmental justice| and demilitarization.
