In conjunction with JANM’s hapa.me – 15 years of the hapa project exhibition, scholar Richard Keao NeSmith will discuss the origins and evolution of the word hapa, the Hawaiian interpretation of the English word “half.” His talk will address varying perspectives on who is hapa, who can or should rightfully use the term, and what linguists call the etymological process of conversion.

NeSmith has written an essay included in the hapa.me catalog (available at the JANM Store after April 7); he will sign copies following the program.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended.
