Tuesday at Volcanoes National Park - Tuesday June 10th

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 in June. All programs are free, but park entrance fees apply. Programs are co-sponsored by the Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association. Kapo‘eno‘ono‘o: Early Native Hawaiian Scholars. We rely on the works of Davida Malo, John Papa ‘I‘i, Samuela Kamakau, Kepelino, and S.N. Hale‘ole for insight on the history, cultural practices, literature and genealogies of pre-contact Hawai‘i. Former park archivist Helen Wong Smith specializes in Hawaiian archival material, and serves on the Council of the Society of American Archivists as the first archivist from Hawai‘i since 1968, explains how these men straddled two cultures, how their efforts provide us with unadulterated knowledge of wā kaiko (ancient times), and how can we access their publications in the digital era. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series. Free, and your $2 donation helps support After Dark programs. When: Tues., June 10, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Where: Kīlauea Visitor Center Auditorium
