HONOLULU— The Bishop Museum invites the public to explore the legend of Haloa and the inextricable link between the genealogy of the Hawaiian people and sacred kalo through “Haloa Whispers. My Myth, My Man, My Legend,” as part of the museum’s ongoing educational series, “Traditions of the Pacific.” The lecture begins at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011 in Bishop Museum’s Atherton Halau.

Kyle Nakanelua, a Hawaiian Renaissance man and noted Hawaiian traditionalist, will be presenting the lecture. Both a successful Fire Protection Specialist with Hawai‘i’s Department of Transportation, Airports Division and a man immersed in Papa Hānau Moku, the Earth Mother, Nakanelua works to bring consciousness through knowledge.

Traditions of the Pacific is an ongoing educational series that explores the intersection between culture and science through various topics pertaining to the natural and cultural history of Hawai‘i and the Pacific. The program is coordinated by the Bishop Museum Association Council.

The fee to attend the lecture is $10 for non-members. General members are free. To RSVP, please call (808) 847-8296 or email
This program is funded under the Native Hawaiian Culture and Arts Program (NHCAP).
