Hawaiian Affairs Caucus logo

Aloha e nā hoa,

Papahana Kuaola has extended us an invitation to participate in their Mo’olelo/Mele Tour(s) offered by the Lelekamanu Program.  

There is no cost to attend, but you are allowed to register for only ONE tour, either the Mele OR Moʻolelo Tour. A separate application must be completed for each applicant. If the tours do not fill up, we will contact you about registration for another tour.

The tour will be conducted on a school bus, with multiple stops getting on and off the bus, and some walking. At the end of the tour, we will ask that you fill out a survey about the tour. The recommended age for participants is 8 years old and above.

Registration will be based on a first come, first served basis. Upon receipt of your registration, we will send you a confirmation email that will include items to bring and wear and a Consent Form. A form for each person participating in the tour will need to be filled out and brought with you on the day of the tour. Anyone who has not completed the Consent Form will not be able to participate in the tour. If you need to cancel after registering, please call or email at least one week before the tour. Usually, there are people on a waiting list that would like to participate.

Please click on the link to register or go to https://goo.gl/forms/tNHWlhzXRlERrEd52 for a Mele or Moolelo Tour.
