Last week we were honored with a visit from the teachers and staff of the Kamehameha Schools from Oahu. Bringing gifts of tea leaves and inquiring minds, they were warmly welcomed by Rupert Rowe, Po’o of Kaneiolouma.
Randy Wichman, project historian, shared a fascinating historical overview and answered a number of excellent questions. Kane Turalde, Hawaiian cultural practitioner, was on hand to talk story and introduce the cultural significance of the site.
This visit was planned in anticipation of the day when Kamehameha Schools will be able to bring their students here, to experience a living cultural center for the Hawaiian people.
Mahalo for your visit to Kauai, and to Kaneiolouma!
