Hawaiian Culture Night on Maunakea
 The Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station’s free monthly program, “Malalo o ka Po Lani,” will be held on Saturday, September 17th, 2011 at the Onizuka Center for International Astronomy Visitor Information Station’s presentation room, beginning at 6:00pm. The presentation will take place for approximately one hour, with our stargazing program following shortly thereafter.
--> Join special guest, farmer and artist Eric Chang, and hosts Leilehua Yuen and Manu Josiah, in “Ahupua`a,” as we explore how the traditional land-management system of Hawai`i sustained the human population while preserving natural resources. After a brief overview of the ancient traditions of the ahupua`a, Eric will speak on how he, as a farmer, continues the traditions in modern times, and how he integrates stewardship of the land with his artistry.  
  
Come up for Culture Night on Maunakea for an evening of Hawaiian music, chants, stories, and science. Then, join the star party at the Onizuka Center lanai for some of the best star gazing in the world!
     
Each month, a different Cultural Practitioner shares perspectives on an aspect of Hawaiian culture, history, and or arts relating to the natural history of Maunakea. The “Malalo o ka Po Lani” cultural program is held on the third Saturday of every month in the Ellison Onizuka Center for International Astronomy Visitor Information Station’s presentation room at the 9,300 ft eleveation on Mauna Kea.  For more information on programs at the Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station please visit our web site: www.ifa.hawaii.edu/info/vis or call us at (808) 961-2180.  Aloha.
