By Maui Now Staff
Haleakalā National Park launches this year’s Hana Noʻeau cultural demonstration series on Monday, June 1, 2015. The series kicks off with a demonstration by cultural practitioner Bolly Helekahi in the Kīpahulu District of the Park. Helekahi will teach coconut weaving between 1 and 3 p.m. Hana Noʻeau refers to demonstrating and honoring Native Hawaiian traditions.
“We are proud to offer the second year of this series,” said superintendent Natalie Gates in an event announcement. “We appreciate the support of the Hawaiʻi Pacific Parks Association, our non-profit partner, in funding Hana Noʻeau.”
The weekly demonstrations are offered in Kīpahulu on Sundays or Mondays between 1 and 3p.m.; and in the Summit on Fridays or Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.
A list of planned events is regularly updated at the National Park website.
Practitioners wishing to participate in this series can find an application at any Haleakalā National Park visitor center.
