Hope through Healing in the ʻĀina – Kuhiawaho, Waiawa Kai

In collaboration with Kamehameha Schools ‘Ewa Region and Alumni Relations
Registration at 8:30 AM; Event ends at 10:30 AM
Kuhiawaho, Waiawa Kai (below Leeward Community College)
96-053 Waiawa Rd., Pearl City, Hi 96782

Our Hawai’i culture is rich with healing. Join us as we begin a journey of bringing our TACA ‘ohana together to return to the land by spending the day in a lo’i. Many times our children miss out on opportunities to spend a day learning about and working in a lo’i – sensory issues and large groups can make it difficult to participate. Together, ‘ohana will have the opportunity to experience the lo’i, spend time with other TACA ‘ohana, and share food.
Participation is limited for this free event and an RSVP is required. Participating ‘ohana are welcome to bring a potluck snack to share with the other ‘ohana and asked to arrive in only one car per ‘ohana; please feel free to bring snacks for your child if they are on a special diet.
