Join Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner George Kahumoku Jr. for this special event!
Join Hawaiian cultural practitioner George Kahumoku Jr. for his very special event. Tutu Pele is revered in Hawaiian culture for her power and force. In Hawaiian culture and folklore, the gods are the embodiment of nature, and as our ancestors, connect us to our island lands. A living force, Pele, goddess of the volcano and fire, is in the midst of creating new land as she manifests as lava. Renowned award winning musician George Kahumoku Jr. shares the history and delves into the stories of Pele that he learned from childhood on Hawaii Island. Participants will learn Hawaiian protocols, including the native plants that embody Pele and "ho'okupu", gifts that honor Pele. George will teach participants a traditional Hawaiian chant to Pele, and as George shares songs of Pele, participants will have the chance to learn an accompanying hula, Aia La O Pele ("There's Pele") hula taught by George's nephew Lopaka Naihe.
