Much mahalo to an amazing weekend with the Seattle Aquarium for its annual Hawai'i weekend January 19 - January 21, 2019! It was fulfilling to be able to engage closely with youth and families as we discussed the oppression, evolution, and revitalization of language, dance, and Hawaiian culture; the significance of Hawai'i's marine life and how to protect it; and the ways we can better connect with one another through story-telling, listening, and sharing. I spent time reading stories with youth and hosting a hula dance workshop where we worked in small groups and performed together onstage. I met so many new folks and so many folks from all walks of my life, including classmates from Hawai'i! Much mahalo to the team at the Aquarium and congratulations on another great year!
