"The Life and Legacy of Kamehameha the Great" is the topic of Wednesday's talk by Fred Cachola, an authority on the accomplishments of Hawai`i's first monarch. First, Cachola will focus on the birth of Kamehameha and events that influenced the place names of Kohala. He'll also discuss Kamehameha's enduring legacy: the mana and character of Hawai`i's most famous hero and inspirational leader.
A member of Malama Na Wahi Pana `O Kohala who was born and raised in that district, Cachola is a retired educator and historian with a B.A. in Education from the University of Northern Iowa and an M.A. in Philosophy of Education from the University of Hawai`i at Manoa. After 11 years as a Department of Education teacher and principal, he moved on to Kamehameha Schools, where he served as Director of the Education Extension Division for 25 years, retiring in 1997. These days he is a volunteer docent at `Iolani Palace and Washington Place, as well as helping with numerous educational programs in Kohala and Kona.
Next month's lecture on July 31 will be given by Captain Rick Gaffney, who will talk about the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament.  Hanohano 'o Kona - Honoring Kona, a free community lecture series, will spotlight local and state speakers on a wide variety of cultural and historical subjects. Presented by Kona Historical Society and the Hawai`i Council for the Humanities, in cooperation with the County of Hawai`i, this lecture series is a gift from the Society to the community that has supported it for so long. The talks will be held the last Wednesday of each month at the West Hawai`i Civic Center (Kealakehe Parkway and Ane Keohokalole Highway) from 5:30-7:00 p.m.





The Kona Historical Society continues to preserve and share an appreciation of Kona's sense of place and inspire everyone to continue the sustainable practices of generations past.
