The theme of the Moʻolelo Storytelling Festival – ‘Au I Ke Kai or Crossing the Distant Sea – explores through stories the connections that have existed between peoples living throughout the Pacific region, since long before recorded history. These stories are told in myriad ways: through oli (chant), mele (song), hula (dance) and the legends and oral history passed down for generations.
