On Monday, June 1, cultural practitioner Bolly Helekahi will launch the 2015 Hana No`eau cultural demonstration series, in the Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park. Helekahi will teach coconut weaving between 1pm and 3pm.

Hana No`eau refers to demonstrating and honoring Native Hawaiian traditions.

“We are proud to offer the second year of this series,” said superintendent Natalie Gates. “We appreciate the support of the Hawai`i Pacific Parks Association, our non-profit partner, in funding Hana No`eau.”

The weekly demonstrations are offered in Kīpahulu on Sundays or Mondays between 1pm and 3pm; and in the Summit on Fridays or Saturdays from 10am to 12pm. For a list of planned events please visit www.nps.gov/hale/planyourvisit/things2do.htm.

Practitioners wishing to participate in this series will find an application at any Haleakalā National Park visitor center or online at http://www.nps.gov/hale/getinvolved/index.htm.

If you happen to participate in any of our cultural demonstration series programs during the summer season, feel free to share any of your photos with us on Facebook or Twitter and be sure to use the hashtag ‪#‎FindYourPark‬ when you do!
