Indigenous Knowledge of Pueo (Hawaiian Short-eared Owl; Asio flammeus sandwichensis) based on Kānaka ʻŌiwi (Native Hawaiian) perspectives
A wealth of Indigenous Knowledge about Native species is contained in primary Hawaiian language sources such as moʻolelo, kaʻao oli, mele, and other articles in Nūpepa (Hawaiian language newspapers). Pueo (Hawaiian Short-eared owl; Asio flammeus sandwichensis) are an endemic raptor species that have significant cultural importance as ʻaumakua and kinolau of various akua, and we can learn a lot about this elusive and understudied species by looking at knowledge contained in these sources.
Speaker 2: Chris Hobbs
