Tiara Na'puti

With recent announcements of Native Americans eligible to have their UC tuition waived beginning this fall, and adding Native Hawaiians to the heritage month that historically honored Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, we checked in with assistant professor Tiara Na’puti in the Department of Global and International Studies to help break down these massive identity groups and their cultures. Broadcasting from the island of Guam, Na’puti shares about her work with Indigenous populations in the Pacific Islands and how that translates to better understanding of global indigeneity.
