KIRK’s Mahina‘ai Night Slated for Saturday, Aug. 29
By Maui Now Staff
The Kahoʻolawe Island Reserve Commission invites the public to Mahina‘ai Night on Saturday, Aug. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m. at its Kīhei boat house property, an eight-acre parcel designated to the KIRC in 2002 as the future site of a Kahoʻolawe learning center.
Part of a series of full-moon events geared to raise awareness of and access to Kahoʻolawe, the free event offers a guided tour of the KIRC’s new walking trail, live music by the University of Hawai‘i Maui College’s Institute of Hawaiian Music, food vendors, and an opportunity to talk story with experts in Kahoʻolawe history, restoration and culture.
A 45-minute tour on the walking trail will begin promptly at 6 p.m. IHM will perform from 7 o 8 p.m.
Park at the Kīhei Boat Ramp and follow signs for the Kaho‘olawe Island Reserve Commission—a short walk to the boat house site at 2780 South Kīhei Road.
Attendees are asked to bring flashlights and wear closed-toe footwear for walking on a mulch-lined path among kiawe.
There are no ATM’s on-site; bring cash or checks to purchase food, beverages or to make a contribution to the Kaho‘olawe Rehabilitation Trust Fund.
RSVP on Facebook.
This program is made possible by a grant through the Maui County Product Enrichment Program.
