On December 19th we embarked on morning solstice ceremonies at Kumukahi. As sun rose up, so did the status of four of our students in our hālau, to assume the role of alakaʻi. They now take on the role of disseminating information to our collective learners. They are the kumuʻs voice.
With each benchmark like hoʻopiʻi kuahu, comes higher responsibilities for each of them in our learning space. Aligning celestial days is also important with traditional graduations as it affords us to opportunity to commune in direct kinship to our landscape. It is the key component to who we are and what we do in our hālau.
