Presented by Paniolo Preservation Society and hosted by cultural practitioner and educator Ku’ulei Keakealani, this popular FREE community gathering features stories, music, hula and the people and practices of Hawai’i’s proud paniolo heritage. July’s Paniolo Talk Story Night will feature songs and stories from three generations of the Haleamau ‘ohana. Guests include kupuna Karin Haleamau, daughter Kalei, son Kevin, and two grandchildren – superb singers, musicians and storytellers! Gates open at 5 p.m. with time to enjoy dinner (coolers welcome or purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages there) and talk story; program begins at 6 p.m. in the open-air courtyard. Beach chairs, mats and warm clothing suggested for cool Waimea evening. While free, thanks to a Richard Smart grant from Hawai’i Community Foundation, donations to Paniolo Preservation Society’s Paniolo Heritage Center are appreciated.
