ʻEhā Moʻolelo Kuʻuna

He mau hana keaka pāpeta (hula kiʻi), na ka papa o Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu

Kuhikuhi ʻia e ke kumu Kauʻi Kaina

E pili ana i kēia mau hana keaka pāpeta

He moʻolelo kuʻuna, he haʻawina mau loa. ʻO ka haʻi moʻolelo ke ala i paʻa nui ai nā inoa ʻāina, ka moʻokūʻauhau, nā hana noʻeau, nā mele, a me nā haʻawina o ke ola kanaka. I kēia makahiki kula, ua heluhelu a hoʻopaʻa nā haumāna o ka papa 11 i kekahi o ia mau moʻolelo kuʻuna i pūlama ʻia. Ma ka hoʻopaʻa pono ʻana i ia mau moʻolelo, ua haku lākou i mau hana keaka e kālele ana ma luna o nā hanana a me ka haʻawina nui o ia mau moʻolelo he wahi hoʻomanaʻo no kākou e hoʻoikaika mau ma ke ʻano he kanaka a ma ke ʻano hoʻi he lāhui. ʻO ke kiʻi ke ala i hōʻola hou ʻia nā hāmeʻe o ia mau moʻolelo e komo hou ai kekahi hana noʻeau hou aku a nā kūpuna ma ka haʻi moʻolelo ʻana. No kekahi o nā moʻolelo, ua hoʻololiloli ʻia ka wā i mea e hoʻopili ai nā haumāna i ko lākou ola i kēia wā. A no laila, e nanea a walea mai i kā lākou moʻolelo ʻana.

 

A traditional story, a lifelong lesson. Storytelling is a way our ancestors recorded the knowledge of our place names, genealogy, arts & crafts, poetry, and lessons of life. This school year the students of the 11th grade read and familiarize themselves with a few of these cherished stories. As they familiarize themselves with these stories they wrote, created, and produced these stories in the form of a short play using pictures and kiʻi. For some of these plays, they changed the time period to reflect that of a more modern era, to help them and other audience members remember that the essence of the story is not in the timeline, but rather in the lessons that are still prevalent to us today. So, sit back and enjoy their creation and adaptations.
