This year's Hōʻike "Keʻelikōlani Moku Aʻe Ka Pawa" honors Princess Ruth Keʻelikōlani. The production will be the first hula drama produced by our high school, breaking new ground to honor a woman of great significance to the moʻokūʻauhau of Kamehameha Schools. Moku Aʻe Ka Pawa—the pre-dawn darkness is breaking—references the reawakening of Hawaiian consciousness, as we know Keʻelikōlani was never disconnected from her kānaka identity. Through hula, mele, art, and pāleoleo (rap), a vibrant moʻolelo will be shared celebrating the life, lessons, and connections of Keʻelikōlani. Want to get a behind the scenes look at this year’s production? Follow @mokuaekapawa on Instagram to see some of the featured mele, manaʻo, and nā haumāna, kumu a me limahana helping to bring this special production to life.
