Mahalo for joining us at ‘Imiloa’s 9th Annual Wayfinding Festival!

by Brea Aamoth on November 1st, 2016

Mahalo nui to the community for joining us in celebrating Wayfinding Month! October was jam packed with community activities centered around the theme of the wa’a (canoe), culminating with ‘Imiloa’s 9th Annual Wayfinding Festival on October 29, 2016. Hilo’s newly carved canoe, Palikū, was carved and created throughout Wayfinding Month at Hilo Bayfront, and was transferred to ‘Imiloa’s front lawn to be featured at Wayfinding Festival. Check out the videos and photos below recapping Wayfinding Month and Wayfinding Festival!
