Lā Kūʻokoʻa 2023

As in the ways of our kūpuna, Midkiff celebrated Lā Kūʻokoʻa with Mele Aloha ʻĀina.  From our Mele Aloha ʻĀina Album Cover contest to our E Ola Mau Ka Lāhui Hawaiʻi! gallery exhibit to our concert featuring The Vitals 808, we honored mele aloha ʻāina, old and new.  Our haumāna also learned from and were inspired by the ʻoiwi leaders of our Lāhui, demonstrating their alakaʻi lawelawe either through cultural practice, research or leadership.

May Day is Lei Day in Hawaiʻi Nei

Lei was abundant on May Day in Midkiff.  Lei-making workshops were held in Midkiff Makai where haumāna learned to make lei with lāʻī in the hilo and hilo maile style.  The Kamehameha Schools Archive also featured various lei in an exhibit at the Gallery; displaying precious lei hulu and lei pūpū from its collection.
