Seattle Public Schools celebrated its Ethnic Studies Program with the many community members, educators, activists, and students who all contribute to make this significant and much-needed program, a reality. Mahalo to the Ethnic Studies Program Manager Tracy Gill for welcoming Huraiti Mana to perform and share briefly about the history of Tahiti and about our need to dance, to sing, and to bring a more holistic history in all our lives. Ei aha roa to 'oe hiro'a. Eia moe e to'u nuna'a. May you always keep with you the consciousness and dream of your origin.

E mālama pono,
Seattle Children's Museum held their first-ever Patchwork Puget Sound event Saturday, Dec. 29 - Sunday, Dec. 30, 2018. Sunday, Huraiti Mana performed with an Ori Tahiti segment featuring our youngest huraiti! We followed our performance with a lei-making activity for the young and their accompanying young-at-heart. We had a fantastic time with our young audience and are so happy to have participated in this event dedicated to showcasing the communities of the Puget Sound area.
Mauruuru roa to Devin and the entire team at the Seattle Children's Museum. We appreciate the hospitality, the warmth, and the fun you all bring to our city's youth!
