Hana No‘eau 2017: Call for Cultural Practitioners
Haleakalā National Park is seeking cultural practitioners from local communities for its Hana Noʻeau program, a series of cultural demonstrations offered in the park’s Kīpahulu and Summit Districts.
The series is open to all practitioners. Schools and community youth groups are especially encouraged to apply.
The series will run from mid-July to mid-September, 2017. Summit District demonstrations will occur between 10 a.m. and noon on Saturdays. Kīpahulu District cultural demonstrations will occur between 1 and 3 p.m. on Sundays.
“We are excited to offer the Hana Noʻeau series again. It is a great way for many to connect to the park’s cultural and natural resources.” said Honeygirl Duman, Acting Chief of Interpretation and Visitor Education. She added: “and a great way for cultural practitioners to share and celebrate Native Hawaiian manaʻo.”
Through support from the park’s non-profit partner, the Hawaiʻi Pacific Parks Association, an honorarium of $200 will be offered to each group of practitioners.
Spaces are limited and filled on a first come, first served basis. Instructions on how to apply can be found at any Haleakalā National Park visitor center or online.
