Nānā i ke Kumu: Look to the Source
E Hoʻoponopono Kākou

Nānā i ke Kumu no ke Kūkulu Kaiaulu Look to the source for building communityJoin us for a panel of cultural offerings and conversation aligning with ‘ike Hawai’i—Hawaiian wisdom and spiritual tradition(s) along with Ho’opono & Ho’oponopono- the practice of making right, setting one’s course towards righteous actions to return balance to our families. This is a critical practice for healing our communities today from historical and cultural trauma.

 

Practitioners Malina Kaulukukui, Manulani Meyer, and Kaʻaiʻai Paglinwan will offer insights into this profoundly important traditional practice that has made a resurgence in the Hawaiian community through the tireless efforts of their Kumu Lynette Paglinawan. Kahu Moani N. Sitch offers her insights about forgiveness as a spiritual practitioner in community. Meleanna Meyer (also a haumana ho’oponopono ) will moderate.

 

     By educating ourselves about Hawai’i’s past history, we can, as community and family, work to develop and strengthening personal, familial and community bonds, to more readily create meaningful, healing conversations and actionable work towards justice—and ties with others throughout Hawai’i and the world.

Responding to this time of Hulihia-  This panel of community builders including Kamana Beamer, Kehau Abad, Keani Rawlins, Aiko Yamashiro, with Ikaika Hussey moderating will discuss how facing threats to our health, safety and our sense of right, or pono might lead us during these most difficult times. The following question; Pehea lā ke kanaka i ‘apo ‘ia ai e ka ‘āina? How are we Kānaka perceived by the ‘āina-land? Might indeed offer novel insights if we indeed ask how we might be viewed by the most sentient of all— papa honua- mother earth.
