Stories of the Summer Stars


The stars over Hawai`i tell the stories of our ancestors, heros, voyages, and victories. They are our calendar and our clock.


Join Manu Josiah and Leilehua Yuen tonight as they use music, storytelling, and hula to share stories of the summer stars.


After the program in the lecture room, participants are invited to go up to the free star-gazing program at the Visitor Information Station, where the Culture Night speakers will point out Hawaiian constellations.
