ʻAha Kāne 2010 addresses the issues of Native Hawaiian male leadership by focusing on the cultural history and role of Native Hawaiian men in the past, present, and future. This 3-day conference held at the Windward Community College campus in June 2010 included cultural workshops on lomilomi, ʻai pono, mālama i ke kai, lua, hula, ʻōlelo, and mahiʻai. By actively engaging participants in these traditional practices, ʻAha Kāne sought to raise awareness and empower Native Hawaiian men to fulfill the roles and responsibilities amongst ourselves, our families, and our communities. This video highlights some of the many conference workshops. Full-length videos of individual workshops will be available shortly on ʻŌiwi TV.
