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.

Please visit the Event Calendar above 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.

It is with great sadness and appreciation that we relay to you that our founder, Mary Moragne Cooke, passed away on Saturday, June 25th, 2022. Mary has passed along a baton of stewardship, giving back to the community with the utmost grace and humility that we can all carry forward. Memorial plans for her will be arranged later this year when, hopefully, COVID conditions subside.  Mary M. Cooke dedicated her life to community service and to the Hawaiʻi that she loved so much. In addition to founding Mānoa Heritage Center with her late husband Sam Cooke, Mary founded Mālama Mānoa in the early 1990s. She served as a Trustee for Punahou School, the National Trust for Historical Preservation and as President of the Garden Club of Honolulu.  We  are so very grateful to you Mary and will miss you from the bottom of our hearts.

In our new beach garden area, the ʻāweoweo (Chenopodium oahuense) or Hawaiian Goosefoot is flourishing. Does the name of this endemic plant sound familiar? It may if you know your fish 🐟 ʻĀweoweo shares its name with the endemic Hawaiian Bigeye. This duality comes from the Kumulipo or Hawaiian creation chant where things are created in a dualistic manner meaning that when something is created in the ocean there is often a counterpart on land or in the air or even both! ʻĀweoweo stems can have red streaks and if you crush the leaves it has a fishy smell, both of these characteristics matching its marine counterpart.  #NativeHawaiianPlants #NativeHawaiianBeachPlants #EndemicHawaiianPlants #Āweoweo #ChenopodiumOahuense #HawaiianGoosefoot #HawaiianBigeye #FridayFlower #Kumulipo #FloraFriday #FridayFlora

There’s still space in our upcoming Ma Ka Hana Ka ʻIke workshop with Moani Hibbard of @aoolaskin. In this botanical workshop participants will create their own good-for-the-body natural skincare with exfoliating salt body scrub and refreshing fruit or chocolate face mask.  Participants will start the day giving back to the 'āina and being stewards of the land by doing some weeding in the garden. Then they will transition into the classroom and explore how some of the herbs they will be using can benefit the skin both inside and out before creating their products.  🌹Go to our website to register or visit bit.ly/bodyscrub625  #ManoaHeritageCenter #MaKaHanaKaIkeWorkshops #BotanicalSkinCare #AoOlaSkin #ExfoliatingSaltScrub #PowderFaceMask #ManoaValley

Here at MHC we have several endangered native plants in our gardens such as: Munroidendron, Koʻoloaʻula, ʻIhiʻihilauākea (the Hawaiian 4-leaf clover), Maʻo Hau Hele (Hawaiʻi’s state flower), ʻUhiʻuhi, and Bonamia. We also love bees 💛🐝 They’re great pollinators and help to keep our ʻāina healthy! Some bee favorites in our gardens are munroidendron, comfrey, ʻilima, and ʻōhiʻa mamo. #ManoaHeritageCenter #ManoaValley #EndemicEndangeredSpecies #EndemicHawaiianPlants #NativeHawaiianPlants #EndangeredSpeciesDay #Munroidendron #Kooloaula #Ihiihilauākea #MaoHauHele #Uhiuhi #Bonamia #BeeLover #Bees🐝 #Ilima #SidaFallax #Comfrey #OhiaMamo #OhiaLove

Our winged beans in the Elpidio and Nobuko Acopan  Filipino Garden are flourishing. Known in the Philippines as Pallang (Ilocano) or Sigarilyas (Tagalog), winged beans are used in traditional Filipino dishes such as pinakbet (vegetable stew usually with a protein such as seafood or pork) and dinengdeng (Filipino vegetable stew with fish) winged beans are a nutritious and delicious vegetable. With a flavor similar to asparagus they are high in protein, antioxidants, and many vitamins and minerals with the highest calcium content of all legumes.  One fun fact about winged beans is that all parts of the plant are edible!
🌱 Flowers can be used as food color and edible decoration
🌱 Tubers are rich in protein with a nutty flavor
🌱 Dried seeds can be made into flour or roasted and used as a coffee substitute
🌱 Tender immature seed pods are most widely eaten
🌱 Leaves are prepared and eaten similar to spinach
🌱 Beans can be made into milk, much like soy  #WingedBeans #Sigarilyas #Pallang #PsophocarpusTetragonolobus #ElpidioAndNobukoAcopanGarden #FilipinoGarden #FilipinoPlants #ManoaHeritageCenter #FridayFlower #FlowerFriday #AsianAmericanPacificIslanderMonth #AAPIHeritageMonth
