Renowned Kumu Hula and Cultural Leader to Make Maui Appearance Friday, June 9, 2017.

“Pua Kanahele is the Harvard of Hawaiʻi. Through her brilliant analysis we enter the astonishing world of our ancestors.”

- Lilikalā Kame'eleihiwa

On Friday, June 9th, The Merwin Conservancy presents an evening with Hawaiian cultural expert and living treasure Dr. Pualani Kanaka‘ole-Kanahele, whose lifetime accomplishments as a Kumu Hula, writer, educator, musician, and dedicated community leader make her a very sought-after speaker and cultural consultant. Dr. Kanahele is the guest of honor at the next installment of The Green Room, an environmental and literary salon series on Maui that is hosted by the Conservancy and fosters a reverence for language, nature, and imagination. The event begins at 7:00pm in the McCoy Theater at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, with doors opening at 6:30pm. Tickets are $25 per person, with a $10 student rate available with valid student I.D.

Born in Keaukaha on the Big Island, Dr. Pualani Kanaka‘ole-Kanahele (“Pua”) was reared in the traditions of her ancestors and has been highly influential in the resurgence of Hawaiian practices and interest in all things Hawaiian.

Daughters of the late hula and chant master Edith Kanaka‘ole, Pua and her sister Nalani have led the world-renowned classical Hawaiian cultural dance and dance group Halau o Kekuhi. In 1995, Pua co-wrote and directed the first opera-length stage hula drama, Holo Mai Pele, based on the Hawaiian literary saga of Pele and Hi‘iaka. She co-directed the film version for the PBS’s Great Performance series. The production won a 2001 CINE Award-Golden Eagle for excellence in film production. Among her many audio books and articles is Puka Kama‘ehu, a compact disk recording nominated in the Hawaiian Music Category for the 2005 Grammy Awards.

A much sought-after speaker, panelist and expert cultural consultant, she was invited by the Dalai Lama to speak on the subject of world peace in 1994 and was the Hawai‘i representative for the UNESCO advisory committee on native cultures and intellectual property rights in 1999.

Dr. Kanahele will make her June 9th appearance in The Green Room with an inspiring presentation followed by an intimate Q&A with the audience, and book signing at a courtyard reception with dessert, champagne, book fair, and live musical entertainment.

This evening is generously presented by FIM Group. All ticket sales benefit the non-profit Merwin Conservancy
