‘O Hānau Ka Pō Iā Luna: A Presentation on Hawaiian Worldviews and Relationship to Maunakea
Join us for the third event in our ‘Imiākea series, which is aimed at expanding our understanding of all that Maunakea represents. This month’s event features ‘O Hānau Ka Pō Iā Luna, a chant that honors the birth of Kamehameha III and traces his lineage to Hawai‘i Island’s natural landscape. A section of this chant describes the birth of a mauna (mountain) of “Kea,” which many Hawaiian scholars and practitioners have associated with the creation of Maunakea on the island of Hawai‘i.
Join Ku‘uipo Freitas and Ku‘ulei Kanahele on Wednesday, June 29 at 5:30 p.m. for a presentation on native Hawaiians’ relationship to Maunakea, and what role their worldview is playing in the modern movement of protest against development on Maunakea. This free community event is located in our Moanahōkū Hall.
