An Examination of post-Colonial Hawaii as seen in Disney's Lilo and Stitch

Analyse aspects of the film franchise and television series that depict the reality of a post-colonial Hawaiian culture. Specifically, how is Hawaiian culture present, represented, and changed in Lilo and Stitch, and what symbols and motifs are present that affect this?

  • Think about how the history of Hawaii, colonized Hawaii, and post-colonial Hawaii affect the culture. How does the history affect the people, the language, the belief system or morals? And how does that affect Lilo and Nani personally? How do Lilo and Nani represent the Hawaiian culture? How do their words and their actions, reflect the culture? And how does their influence impact Stitch? What does that mean about sharing cultures? – AutamnDarling 8 years ago
