This special edition of Hawaii Storytellers will take place in Nanakuli and feature West Oahu community members.

Since last year, Civil Beat started taking a new approach to covering West Oahu, one that involved deeper engagement with residents and others who live and work on the Westside. Now we celebrate the people we have met along the way with a special place-based Hawaii Storytellers, hosted by reporter Kuʻu Kauanoe.

This free in-person event will be held at Kalanihookaha Community Learning Center in Nanakuli. If you’re unable to attend in-person but don’t want to miss out, register to receive the post-event email that will contain recordings of the storytellers.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for interactive activities such as art with 808 Urban, food available for purchase from Kahumana Organic Farm and Cafe and more. The storytelling program will begin at 7 p.m.

Featured Storytellers:

  • Mikiala Lidstone, Kumu Hula and Executive Director of the Ulu Aʻe Center in Kapolei
  • Candy Suiso, Executive Director of Searider Productions at Waianae High School
  • Kalehua Krug, Principal of Ka Waihona o ka Naʻauao Public Charter School in Nānākuli and activist
