Kona Historical Society - Upcoming Events

The Culture of the Canoe: 
He `Inoa No Lili`uokalani ~
In the Name of Lili`uokalani

Wednesday, August 29
West Hawai`i Civic Center, 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Hannah Springer, kama`aina of the ahupua`a of Kaupulehu and daughter of Hu`e Hu`e Ranch, will lead this talk, along with local canoe club coaches, about the largest, long distance canoe race in the world. If you're a paddler or would like to hear about the history of the Queen Lili`uokalani Canoe Race through the eyes of people who have paddled it then you don't want to miss this lecture.

This is the August portion of the Hanohano `O Kona Lecture Series which spotlights local and state speakers on a wide variety of cultural and historical subjects. Presented by Kona Historical Society, in cooperation with the County of Hawai`i, this community lecture series is a gift from the Society to the community that has supported it for so long. Free of charge, it is open to all, residents and visitors alike.
