Makahiki, the Hawaiian New Year is on December 6th in 2010.  Join Leilehua Yuen and Manu Josiah as they take you 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.

On the third Saturday of the month, the VIS hosts Malalo o ka Po Lani, a special presentation covering cultural components that surround Mauna O Wakea. The presentation begins at 6:00 PM and is followed by the regular evening stargazing program.

Each month features a different speaker from the community who will speak about Mauna O Wakea from a cultural perspective.
