How do our stories resonate with–and carry–the lessons and medicine of our ways of knowing and being, including the knowledge of our ancestors and our indigenous traditions?
This 45-minute panel discussion features global storyteller Kiran Singh Sirah (this year’s closing plenary speaker at the Pacific Rim International Conference on Disability and Diversity) and Tarcisius Kabutaulaka, Associate Professor at the Department of Pacific Islands Studies/Center for Pacific Islands Studies in the College of Arts, Languages & Letters at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
The informal conversation explores the ways in which storytelling may nurture our selves and communities and connect us with the life-giving lessons of the shared original traditions that sustain us. It is moderated by Raphael Raphael, Assistant Professor at the Center on Disability Studies, College of Education.
