Noelle M.K.Y. Kahanu, specialist of Public Humanities and Native Hawaiian Programs at the Department of American Studies at the University of Hawai'i makes a speech during the first repatriation from Saxony to Hawai'i in October 2017. Visitors can view parts of her speech and other voices in the film "We are talking about human beings" by Clara Wieck, shown in the exhibition.

[Translate to English:] ..

The first exhibition on repatriation took place in the "Workshop PROLOG". It illustrated two stories of repatriation. Included was the historical context of colonisation and human remains. Karajarri artist Michael Jalaru Torres was also exhibited. The SES would like to extend its gratitude to Yawuru Buru Ltd. for exhibition cooperation and translations into Yawuru, Hawai'ian, and Maori.

For future exhibition information, stay informed about (RE)Inventing.
