Hōʻike 2020 – Keʻelikōlani: Moku Aʻe Ka Pawa
March 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The 17th annual Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi Kula Kiʻekiʻe Hōʻike will break new ground as the schools first-ever hula drama, honoring Princess Ruth Keanolani Kanāhoahoa Keʻelikōlani. The show takes place on March 12 and 13 at 6 p.m. in the school’s Koaiʻa Gymnasium.
The title of this year’s Hōʻike is “Keʻelikōlani: Moku Aʻe Ka Pawa”. Moku Aʻe Ka Pawa—the pre-dawn darkness is breaking—references the reawakening of Hawaiian consciousness, as we know Keʻelikōlani was never disconnected from her kānaka identity. Through hula, mele, art, and pāleoleo (rap), a vibrant moʻolelo will be shared celebrating the life, lessons, and connections of Keʻelikōlani.
Tickets are now available for purchase. $8 presale general admission (through 3/11), $5 for keiki (ages 12 and under) or a VIP package for $20 that includes early entrance, reserved seating, a special gift, and a souvenir photo. Tickets may be purchased online via pauahi.org through March 2, in-person, after-school starting on 2/24 at the High School office from 2:45 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. on school days until March 11, or at the door for $10 from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. on the night of the performance.
