Volcanoes National Park

Hawaiian Cultural & After Dark in the Park Programs Hawaii National Park, Hawai‘i – Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park continues its tradition of sharing Hawaiian culture and After Dark in the Park programs with the community and visitors throughout June. These programs are free, but park entrance fees may apply. Mark your calendars for this upcoming event: ‘Ike Kū‘oko‘a: Liberating Knowledge. More than 100 Hawaiian language newspapers were printed from 1834 to 1948, possibly the largest native-language cache in the western world. The papers were a repository of knowledge, opinion, and the historical progress of Hawaii, yet only two percent of the cache was readily available to the public. ‘Ike Kū‘oko‘a is an effort to open up the resource to all. Join Puakea Nogelmeier as he describes the exciting project, and how you can get involved. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series. Free. When: Tues., June 5, 7 p.m. Where: Kīlauea Visitor Center Auditorium
