A cultural teaching series by Kumu Hula Kehaulani Kekua and hosted by Christ Memorial Episcopal Church in Kilauea is coming up next month.
The public is invited to attend a series of free cultural workshops that will highlight the history, life and experiences of Hawaii’s beloved alii. Entitled, “No Na Lani,” or “For the Heavenly Chief,” the series will feature three cultural workshops that will give participants an opportunity to learn about Queen Lili‘uokalani, King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, their roles and contributions to Hawaii Nei, their connections to Kauai Island through the sharing of mo‘olelo (stories), mele oli and mele hula (chants and dances), as well as himeni (selected hymns).
The workshops will lead up to Christ Memorial’s annual celebration commemorating King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma as the Holy Sovereigns of the Episcopal Church of Hawaii on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 8:30 a.m.
Workshops are on three consecutive Wednesdays on Nov. 5, 12 and 19. It begins each night at 5 with a potluck. The program will be 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. It includes instructional activities and handout materials.
Christ Memorial Parish Hall is at 2518 Kolo Road.
