Traditional Chanting

We’re excited to announce special guests Wainani Kealoha and Keoki Sousa from Maui Nei. Maui Nei is a program of Friends of Moku‘ula and aims to keep history and culture alive for Maui’s residents and visitors by sharing Hawai‘i’s traditions, stories, arts, and skills. Wainani and Keoki will be performing the art of oli (chanting) to kick-off the morning and afternoon activities. Attendees will also have the opportunity to stop by Maui Nui’s educational booth throughout the day to learn about the history and culture of West Maui.
