ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Paddling toward a better Kahalu'u
Kamuela Lau founded an outrigger canoe club in his hometown of Kahalu'u, where there has been a long struggle with ice addiction. Crystal methamphetamine affects not only the users, but their families and communities. With the Keahiakahoe Canoe Club, Kamuela provides an alternate avenue in wa'a (outrigger canoe paddling), a sport that is deeply rooted in Native Hawaiian culture.
BRINGING IT HOME
DANCERS AIM TO SHARE EXPERTISE
Dancers Unlimited, a new local company, is made up of Hawai'i dancers and choreographers who worked on the Mainland but are now back in the Islands to share what they've learned. Their hope is to use their contacts in the dance world to bring established artists to Hawai'i to teach children. Linda Kuo, Brent Koki and Shyrelle Kalilikane are the primary organizers.
The first two classes are tomorrow and Saturday at Aloha Activity Center, 725 Kapiolani Blvd., C-103.
