I remember hearing about this film, ʻKameaʻ a while ago, and was fortunate enough to find it on Vimeo and share it with my daughters. Hereʻs hoping youʻll enjoy it too:
Additionally, there are films by Eddie and Myrna Kamae that are available for viewing for a short time, you can see them here:
Last month we shared some ways to chant your genealogy. This month, weʻre using that genealogy to help you write some moʻolelo, some memories and family stories, in the Hawaiian language! Join us for a fun time!
I came across this while doing some light research online and thought it would be interesting to share! Here is a link to some excerpts from Ke Aliʻi Pauahiʻs travels through Europe in 1875 and 1876:

Application Deadline: Postmarked by March 3, 2017
The Huntsman Cancer Institute is proud to house the PathMaker Research Program for students from underrepresented or disadvantaged populations. HCI and PathMaker supports the entry of students into the biomedical cancer research pipeline through a blend of summer and academic year research experiences that will support the student’s achievement of a career in the biomedical research and the health professions.
The Summer Program consists of a twelve-week summer experience through which students learn about research, experience research, and reflect on a research career by being partners with an HCI Investigator. The Academic Year experience is a part-time experience in a lab with an HCI Investigator and is available on a limited basis. Compensation is provided for both experiences.
The summer students admitted will receive
- A two-week intensive laboratory techniques course that meets Monday-Friday, 9:00am – 3:00pm.

Students who complete the program are likely to improve their chances of obtaining college scholarships and subsequent undergraduate laboratory research experiences.

Ke welina mai nei!
We are excited for the potential in starting a new year. Having the new year start during Makahiki season has always filled us with a certain excitement, energy and creativity. Weʻre looking forward to starting this new year sharing the ideas we have for 2017.
Our first gathering is on January 14th. Please see the flyer below, everyone is welcome! :
We canʻt wait for August 1st!
Weʻre excited to announce that Native Hawaiian Author Lehua Parker will be presenting our moʻolelo for Maui. Lehua is an alumni of the Kamehameha Schools and is the author of the exciting Niuhi Shark Saga. Definintely not to be missed!
To update, we are presenting the moʻolelo in genealogical order, meaning that moʻolelo from Hawaiʻi Island will be presented first, followed by Maui, Oʻahu and Kauaʻi, and are excited to share with everyone!
We hope youʻve all got your calendars marked to join us on August 1st. To update we are excited to have Kupuna Carol Johnson share moʻolelo about her one hānau, Kauaʻi, complete with a power point presentation. Kūpunaʻs heart has never left her beloved Kauaʻi and her connection and passion for the sands of her birth are readily apparent in her hula, singing, and ʻano.
Please note that when you enter the park, please let the rangers know that you are with the Hawaiian Civic Clubs event and you will be able to enter for free.
Weʻll post more information as we get closer to the event, but please if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to assist, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call 801-913-8980.
