Hawaiian Love & Romance: Lecture By Lehua Lopez

Almost every Hawaiian song is a love song! So much of our music describes the love, not only between people, but also the love, the aloha, Hawaiians have for the land, the ocean, the forests, fish, birds and flowers. So many songs evoke the memories of an early romance or the remembrances of a long-time love. Come hear the music, the words, the feelings so deeply expressed in the melodies and hula of the Islands. And, finally, let Lehua Lopez also delight you with the naughty side of Hawaiian Love & Romance!

When: Saturday, July 31st
Time: 2:30-4pm
Where: Ka Lā Kapu 2500 San Mateo Pl. NE Albuquerque, NM 87110

Mahalo to @kalama_polynesian_dancers for inviting us to attend this amazing workshop! Mauruuru @jesyymc and @sefadrums for sharing your knowledge for the Tahitian culture.

Rest in Paradise Haunani-Kay Trask. 🌈 🌺 🙏🏼

Haunani-Kay Trask
October 3, 1949 - July 3, 2021

A lifelong scholar and activist, Haunani-Kay Trask was an early and fearless leader of the Hawaiian sovereignty movement, fighting for self-determination of the Hawaii people. A founding member Ka Lahui Hawai'i, the state’s largest sovereignty organization, Trask spoke and wrote boldly about Native Hawaiian rights, institutional racism, gender discrimination and the United Nations Declaration on the rights of the Indigenous Peoples. She often drew ire for her criticism of the United States; responding to disapproval that her harsh approach was “un-Hawaiian,” Trask one famously responded: “I am not soft. I am not sweet.”

The University of Hawaii-Mānoa, where Trask was a tenured professor for more than 30 years, credits her with co-founding the contemporary field of Hawaiian studies, as she was the founding director of the Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies on the Mānoa campus.

Additionally, she wrote two books of poetry (“Light in the Crevice Never Seen” and “Night is a Sharkskin Drum”) and a collection of politically provocative essays, “From a Native Daughter: Colonialism and Sovereignty in Hawaii.” She also co-wrote and co-produced the award-winning documentary “Act of War: The Overthrow of the Hawaiian Nation,” which premiered in 1994. She is widely considered one of the most influential women in Hawaiian history.

Have you seen Mauna Loa this week? The winter snow is sticking around the summit of the world’s most massive active volcano and is easily visible from lower elevations. Mauna Loa (“long mountain”) last erupted in 1984 and almost reached Hilo. Learn more about the volcano’s fascinating eruptive history on the park’s Mauna Loa webpage, https://go.nps.gov/1uv9n1.
