ʻO wau ʻo Haunani Miyasato. A māmā of 4 keiki who go to a Hawaiian immersion school. Since I needed to learn ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi in order to support their education, I returned to kulanui to learn it. I took a class all about the moon called "Nohona Kaulana Mahina" at Ka Haka ʻUla o Keʻelikōlani with Kumu Henani Enos. I gained so much ʻike from this class and wanted to put it to practice everyday. I compiled all my haʻawina and placed it on a poster so that I could use it in my own home everyday.
I use the ʻike of our Hawaiian scholars; Kepelino, David Malo and Mary Kawena Pukui along with guidance from my kumu Henani Enos, Nāmahama Kalama Pānui and ʻIkaʻaka Nāhuewai. With their kōkua I was able to produce this Kaulana Mahina in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi.
