This year's Hōʻike is being spearheaded by ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi kumu Kalehua Simeona. 

In the lead up to the show, kumu and haumāna are planning a series of different mediums to build insight and excitement into the moʻolelo as we prepare to honor this significant mana wahine, so critical to the existance of our kula. Keep a look out for more in the coming weeks, and make your plans to be in Koaiʻa in March!
