Roots and relationships

Dated

Thu, Apr 24

Ka Mole o Na Pua Festival / Learn new ways to malama at Ka Mole o Na Pua Festival, Leeward Community College’s culminating event of Earth Week. The name Ka Mole is Hawaiian for the main root of a plant, and is meant to demonstrate the relationship between kupuna and keiki.

As the main root nurtures the plant, so too will the festival educate and encourage the youth to take an active part in caring for the environment. Featured entertainers include Brother Noland, Sistah Robi and Jeff Rasmussen, Tony Conjugacion, Roy Sakuma and other Hawaiian mele and hula. Besides non-stop entertainiment, the day-long event will also include arts and crafts activities, Hawaiian games, storytelling and hands on educational activities. And let’s not forget–a true paina wouldn’t be complete without the kau kau! On hand will be organic food, produce and product booths to satisfy your hunger for grub and green information.

Leeward Community College Campus Courtyards, 96-045 Ala Ike St., Sat 4/24, 10am–4pm, free, [leeward.hawaii.edu], 455-0632
