Poetry performances will include The Value of Hawaiʻi 2 contributors Dawn Mahi, Lyz Soto, No‘u Revilla, and Brandy McDougall.
The event kicks off a month-long celebration of ka Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea. For 50 years from 1843-1893, ka Lā Ho‘iho‘i Ea celebrated Hawaiian national independence. It was revived in 1985 by kanaka aloha ‘āina, including Dr. Kekuni Blaisdell and Imaikalani Kalahele. Hui Mau ke Ea continues in this legacy of aloha ‘āina and is sponsoring events throughout July in building momentum toward the annual festivities of ka Lā Hoʻihoʻi Ea at Thomas Square on Saturday, July 27 at noon.
Nā Hua Ea: Words of Genuine Security and Sovereignty is a free, public event presented by Hui Mau ke Ea with its cosponsors: The Value of Hawaiʻi 2 hui, Papahana Kuaola, MANA movement for aloha no ka ʻāina, Womens’ Voices Women Speak, the Center of Biographical Research, and the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities.
