Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club – Na Mea Hawai’i Series
Starting on Tuesday, April 3rd, the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic club is beginning the Na Mea Hawai’i series. These educational workshops has been created in an effort to honor and better know practices of the Hawaiian culture.
According to the Las Vegas Hawaiian Civic Club, “The Las vegas Hawaiian Civic Club proudly presents our Na Mea Hawai’i Loea (Expert), Ku’uleialoha Rogers, as she inaugurates our Na Mea Hawai’i monthly series here in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The purpose of this series is to refresh and bring back the culture, customs, and traditions that were once practiced in Hawai’i during our childhood. This concept is part of our ongoing pirnciple, Nana i ke kumu — to look to the source, or to go ‘back to basics’ — in establishing a stronger foundation for our ‘Ohana, our family, and Island community.
Our first workshop is labeled ‘loss of a Kingdom.’ This workshop covers pivotal events that led up to the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy in January 1893. Queen Lili’uokalani’s famous mele (song), Aloha ‘Oe will also be presented with its music and koana — its hidden meaning.”
The location for this series is Water of Life, Lutheran Church, 5430 S. Grand Canyon Dr., Las Vegas 89147.
