LAST CHANCE TO HELP CREATE KAHILI FOR CHAPEL

Join us for the Kāhili o 'Iolani project that will near its conclusion on Sunday, Jan. 25. Come and assist in honoring our founding patrons King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma with the construction of four feather kāhili. On the two previous Sundays, several members of our community learned that "every feather is a prayer," while perfecting the art of feather tying, and the kāhili heads were built.

The four new feather standards, traditional symbols of the ali'i, will be used at our Founder's Day Chapel on Monday, Feb. 9, which is King Kamehameha IV's birthday. Our kumu is Uncle Herman Helemano Lee, a living treasure, and whose kāhili have been made and shown all over the world.

  • Who: Open to the entire 'Iolani community (K-12 students, faculty, staff and families)
  • When: Sunday, Jan. 25, for two hours (1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and/or 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.)
  • Where: Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership (fourth floor)
