The Kamehameha Schools Hoʻokahua Cultural Vibrancy Group recently hosted Makahi activities for more than 500 KS Kapālama High School students.
The activities were offered over two days at the campus’ Kaʻiwakīloumoku Hawaiian Cultural Center. Students participated in three different activities.
They attended a class on Hawaiian food preparation, making and tasting a healthy limu salad. A second offering was a presentation on the history of Makahiki, including a fun and engaging trivia game called, “You Don’t Know Lono.” The game required the students to draw on their knowledge of Hawaiian history and culture. Their visit concluded with the physical challenge of learning and competing in honuhonu, a seated wrestling game.
Keep an eye out for Makahiki-related events coming up on campus and in our communities! Hauʻoli makahiki hou!
