Mo'olelo: The Exploration and Perpetuation of Genealogy through the Art of Storytelling

`Ulumau Collective will present a genealogical exploration of storytelling through cultural arts. In the ancient Pacific Islander tradition of oral history, “moʻolelo” (stories) pass down ancestral knowledge, sharing everything from daily activities to sacred ceremony. This evening will feature hula, song, chant presented by legendary Kumu Kekuhikuhipuuoneonaaliiokohala Kanae Kanahele, gifts from the ‘aina (land) presented by Kumu Kauʻi Peralto and the art of Tatau (tatoo) presented by Kahu Paʻakū ʻĀlana. These moʻolelo will inspire our multi-generational audience to explore the significance of how knowing your past can help guide & influence your future.
