Sharing some of the activities we enjoyed today at Lā Kū’oko’a. We all learn as we play konāne, and ku’i the kalo. That was some ‘ono poi!
Mahalo to Ke Kumu Pali, our guiding force for Hawaiian studies at WCC, and ASUH-WCC, our student government on campus.

Hau’oli Lā Kū’oko’a (Hawaiian Independence Day)! 
Lā Kū’oko’a is observed annually on Nov. 28. It was on that day in 1843 that Hawai’i was formally recognized as an independent nation by other world powers, including England, France and the United States of America. 
King Kamehameha III was the first Hawaiian monarch to send a delegation to the U.S. and Europe to secure recognition of Hawaii’s sovereignty. 
The achievement was celebrated as a national holiday known as Lā Kū’oko’a from 1843 through the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893.
Renewed efforts have been made in recent years to revive Hawaiian Independence Day celebrations in communities across the islands. 
Please join us today at Hale A’o from 11-1pm as we celebrate Lā Kū’oko’a!!!!!

Come join the carving hui and have some fun learning Hawaiian ʻike through carving traditional Hawaiian Mea Kaua. Through hands-on learning and an immersive cultural learning environment, students will  learn about Kālai Lāʻau (Hawaiian wood carving) ʻŌlelo Hawai’i, Hawaiiʻs ecology, Mahi ‘ai ‘ana (farming). Carve wood, bone, stone and learn traditional ways to harvest and make your own cordage. At the end of the semester you will proudly take home your carvings to the amazement of your ‘ohana.
