Kalani's series of Hawaiian Culture Events feature a different Hawaiian cultural practitioner who speaks and shares 'ike (wisdom) through talk story, hō`ike`ike (demonstration), or hana`ana (performances).

These Hawaiian Culture Events provide a unique forum where Hawai`i and its peoples can come together and share cultural knowledge, customs, and aloha to all willing to receive.
 
 

This month's theme: Lei-Making with Tu`u

Facilitator Bio: "Aloha kakou my name is Tuulei Goo.  I am from the island of Kauai, and moved to island of Hawaii to attend UH-HILO. There I earned a double major  in Hawaiian studies and history in 2000. I have been teaching culture, language, and history to all ages for the past 10 years. I currently work at public charter school and also offer private Hawaiian language classes on saturdays for the community. I also have been teaching lei making. Students learn the proper cultural protocol in gathering foliage and different styles in lei making. I looking forward to seeing you all there. Mahalo."
