Abstract: In this paper, I reflect on the evolution of Native Pacific Cultural Studies with a
partial professional history of Pacific conferences over the last ten years. I ask
what constitutes the edge for each of the components of Native, Pacific, Cultural
Studies and whether such an aggregate is viable. There are unresolved tensions
and conflicts between each of the components—Native and Pacific studies,
Native and Cultural studies, Pacific and Cultural studies—which are highlighted
in the paper. I situate my own work in this history and in these tensions, and discuss
the changes in direction in my intellectual and theoretical approach to the
Pacific.
