Reppin'

Pacific Islander Youth and Native Justice

Edited by Keith L. Camacho
From hip-hop artists in the Marshall Islands to innovative multimedia producers in Vanuatu to racial justice writers in Utah, Pacific Islander youth are using radical expression to transform their communities. Exploring multiple perspectives about Pacific Islander youth cultures in such locations as Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Hawai'i, and Tonga, this cross-disciplinary volume foregrounds social justice methodologies and programs that confront the ongoing legacies of colonization, incarceration, and militarization. The ten essays in this collection also highlight the ways in which youth throughout Oceania and the diaspora have embraced digital technologies to communicate across national boundaries, mobilize sites of political resistance, and remix popular media. By centering Indigenous peoples' creativity and self-determination, Reppin' vividly illuminates the dynamic power of Pacific Islander youth to reshape the present and future of settler cities and other urban spaces in Oceania and beyond.

Endorsements

"One of the most original and inspiring books in youth studies I've read. The Indigenous futurities and urban Oceanic imaginaries eloquently presented offer alternative relations to land, seas, and skies."—Sunaina Maira, author of The 9/11 Generation: Youth, Rights, and Solidarity in the War on Terror

"A politically astute and analytically rich understanding of new formations of Indigeneity, race, gender, and modernity in the urban Pacific."—Ty P. Kāwika Tengan, author of Native Men Remade: Gender and Nation in Contemporary Hawai'i

"Remarkable for its quality and breadth, Reppin' attends to the expansiveness of Oceania. This volume could easily structure courses on youth communities, popular cultures, and cities of the Pacific."—Nitasha Sharma, author of Hip Hop Desis: South Asian American, Blackness, and a Global Race Consciousness

"One-of-a-kind and illuminating: something that not only fills a large gap in the literature of urban youth studies worldwide but also offers fresh perspectives about what it means to be from voices, places, and within situations we usually don't hear about."—Rick Bonus, author of Locating Filipino Americans
