When: Thursday, March 14 2013 @ 07:00 PM HST - 09:30PM
Event Type: Special Occasion

Description: Hear and see the mo‘olelo of Keaomelemele come to life at Kamehameha Schools Hawai‘i H?‘ike 2013. Entitled, E Ho’i I Ke Kumuwaena – Return to the Source, students will share this legend through a dramatic opera filled with oli, mele and hula.

Written in 1884 by Moses Manu, Keaomelemele is a story rarely recounted or published. There are explanations about the gods, the priestly arts and the status of hula in those ancient days of the land. The story offers insights into the supernatural beings called ‘e‘epa and describes the origins of the reptilian mo‘o, both as deities and as beings who hold sway over the watery places and wet niches of the Hawaiian archipelago.

Performances will take place at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6 p.m.) on March 14 and 15 in the Koai‘a gymnasium on the Kea‘au campus. A limited number of tickets will be available starting March 7th for a $5 donation, which goes to the KSH N? Ho‘opaepae student aid fund to assist students and families with emergency needs for school and school programs. To reserve your tickets, please call Lisa Pana at (808) 982-0733 .
