Featured Episode: Kilo Makani

Huddle up everyone in the hale to enjoy some time to hang out with the lāhui…virtually. Tune in to Lei Ānuenue as it connects us across the pae ʻāina and beyond. It’s a time for all of us—kamaliʻi, ʻōpio, mākua, and kūpuna—to enjoy learning together. Familiar lāhui friends will be sharing with us a wide spectrum of fun cultural riches. It might be the beautiful melody and manaʻo of a mele, a cool craft project, or maybe it’s moʻolelo time! Who will be our alakaʻi will be a surprise from session to session. Enjoy all the shades of Lei Ānuenue! View past episodes.

This session features kilo practitioner Kalei Nuʻuhiwa. This is a lesson for the ʻohana about the practice of observing makani (wind). The presentation touches upon the names of winds in Hawaiʻi and the season of winds, and ends with an activity for the whole family to engage with the wind! Supplies to bring – 8.5×11 sheet of paper, String (jut or yarn), 1 disposable chopstick, flagging tape or a trash bag, scotch tape, scissors, hole punch (optional), and color pens. Brought to you by Hawaiʻinuiākea.
