Ruth Langford and Kumu Pa'a Kawika guide an immersive day on-country and explore the healing of connection to Country. Come and experience the knowledge, history, and genealogy of these ancient cultures that are preserved in dance, chant, song, and stories.

Ruth and Kumu will share the many significant values of traditional culture welcoming all who are inspired to learn and connect to Country and her healing traditions.

The ancestral knowledge of our people was handed from generation to generation through an oral tradition, students were chosen and placed into a school of learning; from that moment forward the student lived the teachings of their ancestors.

Knowledge, history, and genealogy are preserved throughout time in dance, chant, song, and stories. On the island of Molokai, Hawaii from the valley of Halawa, this cultural practice is still alive.
