Big Island celebrates Hawaiian culture


Big_Island_celebrates_Hawaiian_cultureOn the Big Island of Hawaii this week? Check out the third annual Moku O Keawe International Festival, which starts tomorrow night (11/5).

The five-day festival  kicks off at 7 p.m. with a concert by Napua Greig, a kumu hula (hula teacher) and 2008 Na Hoku Hanohano female vocalist of the year. [Waikoloa Bowl at Queens’ Gardens, $30, keiki under 5 free].

The week continues with an international hula competition and workshops from Hawaii cultural practitioners. You can learn to make Hawaiian musical instruments, weave lauhala, chant in Hawaiian and dance the hula.
