HANO is proud to announce that Kamanamaikalani Beamer, Ph.D., president and CEO of The Kohala Center, will be the keynote speaker for this year's breakfast plenary. Beamer's speech is titled "He'aina Waiwai: Reflections on Wealth and That Which Feeds Us."
Before joining The Kohala Center as its president and chief executive in 2015, Beamer served as a member of the faculty at the Hui 'Āina Momona Program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a joint appointment in the Richardson School of Law and the Hawai'inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge.
His affiliation with The Kohala Center began with his selection as a postdoctoral fellow in the inaugural cohort of the Mellon-Hawaii Doctoral and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
Beamer's research on governance, land tenure and Hawaiian resource management, and his prior work as the director of 'Āina-Based Education at Kamehameha Schools, prepared him for his continuing service as a director of Stanford University's First Nations Futures Institute, a resource management development program for indigenous leaders developed by Stanford, Kamehameha Schools and Te Runanga o Ngāi Tahu in New Zealand.
Since 2000, Beamer and his ohana have revitalized and maintained taro ponds in Waipio Valley, providing him and his children opportunities to mālama 'āina, deepen connections with cultural traditions and derive leadership lessons from the land.
In 2013 he was nominated by Gov. Neil Abercrombie and confirmed by the Senate to a four-year appointment on Hawaii's Commission of Water Resource Management. In 2014 Beamer published No Mākou ka Mana: Liberating the Nation, which received the Samuel M. Kamakau Book of the Year Award from the Hawaii Book Publishers Association.
Kamana is the son of Kapono Beamer, a Grammy nominated recording artist and Hawaiian slack key guitar virtuoso, and grandson of Nona Beamer, Native Hawaiian educator and master of ancient hula.
