Lāna'i Culture & Heritage Center offers students a special
summer program on the land.
In 2015 haumāna composed a new mele (click play at right) as a part of the E ‘Ike Hou Iā Lāna‘i cultural literacy program. This new mele for Lāna‘i describes their experiences at Lānai Hale, Maunalei and Kahalepalaoa-Wai‘aōpae. Haumāna wrote the lyrics with the assistance of Kumu Jamaica Osorio, Matt Kawaiola Sproat and Kepā Maly. They then worked with master musician, Matt Kawaiola Sproat to develop the melody, and Kepā Maly translated the words into Hawaiian.
A total of 30 students have signed up for the program which begins on Monday, June 13th. Registration is now closed. Mahalo! Kepᾱ Maly, photo. June 7, 2016
