Aha 'Awa & Storytellers

  • Ward Warehouse Amphitheatre 1050 Ala Moana Blvd. Honolulu, HI 96816 USA (map)

On the first Saturday of every month, we invite three community leaders and upcoming motivational speakers to share their mo'olelo in a safe place amongst locals alike. As we listen to storytelling, we witness native Hawaiian cultural practices and share 'awa in a circle on lauhala mats. This follows an ancient tradition with a modern twist. We invite you to join us as we go back into time with ha'akoa, chants and more. Share a sacred drink carried by some of the first voyagers of the Hawaiian islands and leave with a memorable experience.

Update: Admissions fee is $20 for 'awa drinkers and Free for listening only participants. Apus ('awa cups) rentals available at Na Mea Hawaiian Retail Shop 1050 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, HI 96816.
