(“A walking tour with Kupuna Rachel Nahaleelua Mahuiki”)
Rachel Nahaleelua Mahuiki, one of Hanalei's most beloved kūpuna (elders), leads Larry Kimura and a group of Hawaiian language teachers on a tour of Hā‘ena, Kaua‘i.
The trip includes visits to the wet and dry caves, the famous peak, Makana, and a walk on the reef where Rachel shows how to gather and eat seafood such as loli, wana, heʻe and limu.
The program is a lively portrait of a vivacious woman who shares her experiences and, in the process, teaches Hawaiian values.
