Freshman Makahiki Festivities

Dancers showcase their hulaMaking ti-leaf lei

Each year our Freshman Class participates in traditional Makahiki festivities in conjunction with their Hawaiian Culture classes.  Under the direction of Kumu Akina and Kumu Alameida and the grade 9 team teachers, students prepare hula, crafts and game techniques needed to participate in the annual Makahiki competition.  Senior students assist in facilitating the events for the day.  It is an opportunity to showcase leadership skills and a competitive spirit.
