ʻIolani School invites the community to a talk by Jelani Cobb, a professor of journalism at Columbia University and a staff writer at The New Yorker whose work on hip hop culture, politics, race, policing, and injustice has earned him international acclaim.
Join us for this special collaboration with Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design featuring Alsarah and the Nubatones at Blue Note Hawai‘i. Alsarah and the Nubatones are Shangri La's December artists in residence and will also carry their East African retro-pop sound to Maui and Hawai‘i Island.
This ʻohana-centered kalo pounding workshop is intended to strengthen our sense of community through connection to the land and the food that sustains us. Come and learn how to kuʻi kalo to make poi, the traditional staple food of Hawaiʻi cuisine. Stones and boards will be supplied and a healthy ʻai pono potluck will follow. This community kuʻi is best for ages 6 and up and there will be lots of room for keiki to play and watch.
Proceeds to benefit the Pōpolo Project
