MHC Public Programming Update

Aloha mai kākou,

We have reopened for tours of 8 people (max) on weekday afternoons and select Saturday mornings. Please see Event Calendar for specific dates and times and to register for a tour.

In addition, we ask if you are not feeling well, to please consider staying home and rescheduling your visit.

Thank you for helping us to keep our community safe. We hope to see you soon!

During these uncertain times, we want to leave you with this quote shared by our friends at the Polynesian Voyaging Society:

“We are each made for goodness, love, and compassion.  Our lives are transformed as much as the world is when we live with these truths.”

– Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu

PLAN A VISIT

Enjoy this introduction to Mānoa Heritage Center created by recent Mid-Pacific graduate Garrison Lagapa (class of 2018). This short film was a senior project, and part of receiving his Hawaiian Studies certificate.

We are committed to working with the community to nurture responsible stewardship practices and invite you to join our ʻohana as volunteers and partners.

2024 has begun and we have an awesome workshop coming up this Saturday, January 20!  Local artist Kate Righter is back for another session of nature journaling! Come and connect with the native plants in MHC’s gardens whether it be through creative means like writing or drawing, a more analytical approach of facts or diagrams or a combination of both.  Nature journaling is the creative practice of recording thoughts and observations of the ʻāina using a combination of words, pictures and numbers. And it all begins with stepping outside with some paper, a pen or pencil, an open mind, and curiosity!!  Participants will be encouraged to apply a variety of creative techniques and scientific methods of inquiry to their conversations & projects while learning about Hawaiian names for plants, animals, and places. Every lesson is flexible and unique for every class. Ultimately, the land is the best teacher, and remaining open to what can be learned in the moment is the most important lesson.  🌱🐝🌺🎨  Register at the link in our bio!  #ManoaHeritageCenter #ManoaValley #MaKaHanaKaIkeWorkshops #LearnByDoing #NatureJournaling #OahuWorkshops #ArtWorkshop #GetCreative

Happy #FlowerFriday! 🌺  Today’s flower is Haʻuoi (aka Haʻuōwī, oī, Porterweed, or Blue Vervain amongst many other names) scientific name Stachytarpheta urticifolia.  This introduced species came to Hawaiʻi in the late 19th, early 20th century from Tropical Asia/Tropical America, can grow up to 6 ft. tall and has 4 or 5 petaled light to dark blue/blue violet flowers.  Haʻuoi was used in lāʻau lapaʻau to treat a variety of ailments such as fever, muscle aches, broken bones and malaria. It was also used to heal burns, increase milk production in lactating women, and a poultice made from the stems, leaves, and flowers was used externally on cuts and bruises. Its tiny but beautiful flowers are edible with a mushroom flavor and its leaves can be made into tea said to help with sleep and anxiety.  #ManoaHeritageCenter #ManoaValley #LāauLapaauPlants #BlueVervain #Hauoi #Hauōwī #NettleleafVelvetberry #StachytarphetaUrticifolia #Snakeweed #FloraFriday #FridayFlowers #FlowerFriday #FridayFlora

We’ve got some fun workshops coming up in October!  Join us for papermaking with papermaker Allison Roscoe. Learn to laminate flat objects, colored paper (tissue, napkins), dried seeds, cheesecloth, and mesh bags. If you have any of these materials at home and would like to use them in your paper, please bring them. For experienced papermakers, use this time as an open studio to incorporate paper in your art in new ways.  Or come and spend a morning connecting with native plants through nature journaling with artist Kate Righter. Express your creativity through drawing, writing, learning facts and creating diagrams, or all 3! Nature Journaling is the creative practice of recording thoughts and observations of the ʻāina using a combination of words, pictures, and numbers. It all begins with stepping outside with paper, writing utensils, and an open mind. All you need to be is curious!  Links to register are in our bio! We hope to see you there!! 🤙🏽  We’ve got more coming so make sure to follow us on social media (IG & FB) for more fun classes!  #ManoaHeritageCenter #ManoaValley #MaKaHanaKaIkeWorkshops #LearnByDoing #NatureJournaling #Papermaking #OahuWorkshops #HawaiiWorkshops #OctoberWorkshops #BeCreative #HawaiiArtWorkshops #HawaiiPapermaking
