Topic: Nā Kilo Ao Māiki: Observing the Microbial Realm

Learn about the role that microorganisms—the smallest, most abundant forms of life—play in shaping the functionality of our ʻāina. By bridging cultural and historical knowledge with contemporary knowledge systems, we can begin to decode the insight left to us by our kupuna.

Speaker: Dr. Kiana Frank

Dr. Kiana Frank is an Assistant Professor in the Pacific Biosciences Research Center at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. Her work integrates biology, geochemistry and ʻike kupuna (traditional knowledge) to form connections between contemporary western science and Native Hawaiian science.
