Haleakalā National Park launches this year’s Hana Noʻeau cultural demonstration series on Monday, June 1, 2015.  The series kicks off with a demonstration by cultural practitioner Bolly Helekahi in the Kīpahulu District of the Park. Helekahi will teach coconut weaving between 1 and 3 p.m.  Hana Noʻeau refers to demonstrating and honoring Native Hawaiian traditions.
