‘Imiakea (New Series)

Posted January 22, 2016 | Categories: Announcement

Discovering Maunakea

Kicking off the new series on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, will be an evening of mele and hula with two of Hilo’s own young and respected kumu hula, husband and wife Kekoa and Pele Harman. As graduates and faculty of ʻImiloa’s consortium partner, Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani College of Hawaiian Language, Kekoa and Pele are intimately involved in the Hawaiian language movement and community. Hula and mele, moreover, run deep in their roots as practitioners and back through their kūpuna; Pele is the moʻopuna (grandchild) of esteemed kumu hula, scholar and historian, Mary Kawena Pūkuʻi.
