HALAU EA | WORKSHOPS | PANEL DISCUSSIONS
WAIWAI! In our interactions with our community, we are working to redefine and affirm the richer meanings of Waiwai for today.
One word that has consistently shown up as a descriptor for Waiwai is wellness or well-being.
AINA Series / Waiwai Collective / SEPTEMBER. OCTOBER ʻ18
Waiwai Collective proudly presents a new collection of experiences, conversations and events that embody aina. To the kanaka, aina is the entity that feeds, provides shelter and connects community. September and October will bring the heat with a panel that discusses Peleailaau, readings from a newly published oiwi author, a political candidate forum, and much much more.
Come to Ka Waiwai this season to celebrate the generative inspiration of aina….e huai e!
