The Hawai’i Chamber of Commerce of Northern California presents on Sept. 21 “Talk Story with the Akakas” at Michael’s Restaurant at Shoreline Golf Course, Mountain View.
Come Talk Story with Danny “Kaniela” and Anna Akaka as they share treasured stories to give us a Spirit of Place. Reconnect with those Hawaiian values that are the source of life and nature. Travel with them as they share their experiences of the Hokule’a voyage that sailed into San Francisco Bay in 1995 – Danny was Protocol Officer.
Learn the significance of the names of places, how names honor specific locations, Hawaiian protocol and ceremony. Journey through stories from sacred ground on the island of Hawai’i to our own place here in Kaleponi. Danny is a cultural historian, wayfinder, kahu, and musician. He and Anna will bring their very popular “Twilight at Kalahuipua’a” here to us.
