Alakaʻi: Traditional & Modern Leadership in Hawaiʻi

The King Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center invites the public to Alakaʻi: Traditional & Modern Leadership.



Thursday, July 9, 2015 from 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

What were the qualities of a good leader in traditional Hawaiʻi? What qualities do we look for in leaders today? What are the qualities needed to lead Hawaiʻi into the future? 

Malcolm Nāea Chun shares his research on the role of aliʻi in traditional Hawaiian culture and how the qualities inherent in a good chief should play a role in Hawaiʻi as we move forward.

Brendan Burns, the grandson of the late Governor John Burns, discusses the leadership attributes associated with his grandfather, a man from humble beginnings who went on to become one of the most celebrated leaders in modern Hawaiʻi. Governor Burns displayed leadership abilities that brought commitment from supporters, commanded respect from adversaries, and led a political revolution at a time when change in Hawaiʻi was needed.

What lessons can we learn from these models of leadership?

This is a free event. RSVPs are required. (Click here).
