Hawaiian Cultural & After Dark in the Park Programs
Hawaii National Park, Hawai‘i – Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park continues
its tradition of sharing Hawaiian culture and After Dark in the Park
programs with the community and visitors throughout June. These programs
are free, but park entrance fees may apply. Mark your calendars for this
‘Ike Kū‘oko‘a: Liberating Knowledge. More than 100 Hawaiian language
newspapers were printed from 1834 to 1948, possibly the largest
native-language cache in the western world. The papers were a repository of
knowledge, opinion, and the historical progress of Hawaii, yet only two
percent of the cache was readily available to the public. ‘Ike Kū‘oko‘a is
an effort to open up the resource to all. Join Puakea Nogelmeier as he
describes the exciting project, and how you can get involved. Part of
Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series. Free.
When: Tues., June 5, 7 p.m.
Where: Kīlauea Visitor Center Auditorium
