In honor of Koloa Plantation Days, join the event virtually, this Thursday, July 29, 2021 for a Weaving Voices Talk Story with UH Manoa and special guests from the Koloa Community and featuring Oral History recordings from Iki Moir, Katie Bukowski Viveiros, Vicente Bargayo, Marvin Brennecke and Robert Kunimura. Historic Koloa Today: A virtual Talk Story & Reflection.
The many ethnic groups that came to Hawaii to work on sugar plantations (including immigrants from the Philippines, Europe, the Azores, Japan, Korea, China, and elsewhere), and the Hawaiians who welcomed them, are celebrated through music, dance, costumes, and food throughout this family-friendly, ten-day festival. Celebrate the plantation heritage and modern-day vitality of Kauai’s south shore communities of Kōloa and Poipu through guided walks and hikes, story telling, exhibits, rodeo action, and many other activities.
