“The most enjoyable part of the conference for me was the widespread knowledge and innovation of Joe Gallagher. His point of view on everything he spoke about was all about his people”
“Professor Keawe Kaholokula’s presentation was inspiring. Two key messages that stuck with me from Professor Keawe’s presentation were “we as Indigenous peoples living in our homelands need to be the mainstream’, and ‘racism can kill us, but culture can save us’.”
“I love listening to our International speakers, it’s good to hear their stories and issues they encounter on their journey to fight and advocate for their people.”
