Malalo o Ka Po Lani
Hawaiian Culture night on Maunakea

Lehua Mark Veincent
The Mauna Kea Visitor Information Station’s free monthly program, “Malalo o ka Po Lani,” will be held on Saturday, April 21, 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. 

“Pono,”what is it? Why is it important? Learn about this foundation stone of Hawaiian culture from Kumu Lehua Veincent. His talk, entitled, “No ka Pono - Our Existance in Balance,” addresses the concept of pono with specifics such as working toward being reflective in our stance as individuals of our unique place. We pay attention to all that is around us in understanding what is pono (balanced) so we are able to look toward our future as individuals with a clear understanding of who we are and where we come from.

Come up for Malalo o ka Po Lani, Hawaiian Culture Night on Maunakea, for an evening of Hawaiian music, chants, stories, and science as we learn how the traditional Hawaiian relationship with the sky guided the relationships with the land and sea. After the program, join the star party on the Onizuka Center lanai!
