About the Event
Hoʻoikaika Kilo is a 90 minute workshop that integrates Kuʻu Moʻo ʻŌlelo o Nā Pō o Ka Mahina, resources and tools to support ʻāina momona within ourselves, communities, and lāhui. As a participant, you will learn about an initiative here in Hawaiʻi that supports productive and thriving communities of people, place, and natural resources, natural cycles and seasonal indicators of place, and how to track and understand your own personal story and relationship to the moon.
