E Hele Mai I Honaunau


Please join us on Nov. 5 & 6 at Honaunau Bay for a weekend of activities honoring Honaunau – learning about its past through the eyes of its kupuna, and imagining its future through the eyes of those who will come after us.

Honaunau: Ola Mau Loa with TE VAKA on Nov. 5, from 2-6 p.m., is the launch of a community visioning project with the intention of creating a community- and Hawaiian-values based resource and land management plan for our precious ‘aina and all of the cultural, historic, spiritual and life-giving treasures that it holds within its lands and waters. Come learn more about the project, enjoy an afternoon by Honaunau Bay, and dance to the awesome music of TE VAKA, the world-renowned Pacific Island music group.

Also part of the event will be a silent auction to benefit a member of our paddling community who is faced with a very serious medical condition – and no medical insurance.

This event is presented by Keoua Honaunau Canoe Club and sponsored by ‘Apono Hawai‘i and Pasifika Foundation Hawai‘i. For more info: acurrie@hawaii.rr.com

Kukakuka O Honaunau on Nov. 6 from 3-6 p.m., is a very special talk-story gathering that will bring together kupuna of Honaunau along with Danny Kaniela Akaka, Jr. for an afternoon of sharing stories about the old days in Honaunau.

This event is presented by Ka ‘Ohana O Honaunau/Kukulukumuhana O Honaunau and sponsored by Hui Kuapa (Friends of the Future), Ala Kahakai Trail Association and the National Park Foundation through the generous support of Lowes Charitable Education Foundation, the Anschutz Foundation and the Ahmanson Foundation.
