Ty P. Ka¯wika Tengan’s Native Men Remade. Gender and Nation in Contemporary Hawai’i documents how a group of Indigenous Hawaiian men (including the author), as part of a broader cultural nationalist movement, is reworking notions of masculinity and indigeneity by recreating a modern-day warriorhood. While praising the work for expanding anthropological methods and writing, the present review essay explores a question at the core of the book, namely how we can conceptualise localised and global practices and ideas through which contemporary and decolonised Indigenous and gendered forms of identification are shaped. A truly intercultural approach is proposed for a less limiting understanding of what ‘real’ and masculine Indigenous men and others can be.
