TLS 495A/595:   Embodying Our Indigenous Languages Through Hula (Dance), Mele (Song), and Oli (Chant) (3 units)

Topics and Issues in Language, Reading, and Culture

Often overlooked as a form of education, dance, song, and chant are for some an entry point to (re)learning and (re)claiming Indigenous languages. This course will demonstrate how dance, song, and chant are embodied practices of language that are deeply embedded traditions in Indigenous cultures. As an introduction, students will engage in language-rich immersion experiences of hula, mele, and oli in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian) that will reveal historical, linguistic, and cultural knowledge. We will also draw upon other Indigenous language experiences and practices that are represented in the class and by guests, and learn how these traditional and contemporary practices not only documents, but contributes to the revitalization and maintenance of our Indigenous languages.
