Indigenous Storytelling Series

PAʻI is proud to announce the launch of its indigenous storytelling series on Saturday, January 25, 2014 featuring two accomplished playwrights and performers- Moses Good of Hawaiʻi and Jack Dalton of Alaska.  The meet and greet will include original performances by the storytellers and an opportunity for the audience to engage and talk story.

Together, Jack and Moses will create new pieces to be featured in PAʻI’s inaugural indigenous storytelling festival to be held this November.  The series is part of PAʻI’s new project, “ʻAu i ke Kai” (“Crossing the Distant Seas”), a cross-cultural storytelling program that will incorporate educational opportunities for students and teachers to engage with native cultures and moʻolelo.

Teachers who are interested in incorporating indigenous storytelling into their culture are encouraged to attend this Saturday’s two-hour event at the PAʻI Arts and Culture Center (904 Kohou St. #102), from 1 pm to 3 pm.

This program was made possible by the generous funding by the Hawaiʻi State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, and First Peoples Fund. Mahalo!
