Leilehua Yuen - "Makahiki!"


Leilehua Yuen   

Makahiki, the Hawaiian New Year, begins on November 18th in 2009.  The first day is always marked by the reappearance of the first sliver of new moon, or the Hilo Moon, after the Makali'i (or the Pleiades constellation) rises on the eastern horizon as the sun sets.  Join Leilehua Yuen as she takes us on the Makahiki trail in a journey of stories, chants, songs and hula.  Learn how the Hawaiian year was marked by the stars and the moon, and how to make a pu'olo of ti leaves to hold offerings or gifts for the holiday season.
