On Saturday, July 12, Judy Kinser will teach hula and Patricia Gomez will demonstrate feather flower making in the Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park. The activities are part of Hana No`eau, the park’s new cultural demonstration series which features local residents.

 Hana No`eau means “to demonstrate and honor the traditions of the Hawaiian people.”
