THE LIFE & LEGACY OF PRINCE KŪHIŌ

The oldest Hawaiian community-based grassroots organization was founded in 1918 by Prince Jonah Kūhiō. There are 58 Hawaiian Civic Clubs located throughout Hawai‘i and on the mainland. These clubs advocate for the culture, health, economic development, social welfare and nationhood of Native Hawaiians.

One goal of the Hawaiian Civic Club, ‘Ahahui Kīwila Hawai‘i O Mo‘ikeha, is to educate the public about Prince Kūhiō’s life and legacy, that of being a voice for his people.

Please join us as the Hawaiian Civic Club, through narrative, music and pictures, presents the story of Kaua‘i’s beloved Prince Jonah Kūhiō Kalaniana‘ole.

This free event is made possible by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville as a part of the Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program and the Hawaiian Civic Club.

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: THE GIRL FROM OTO

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: THE GIRL FROM OTO

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our March read is The Girl from Oto, a work of fiction by Amy Maroney. Check out the plot summary below!

2015: When art historian Zari Durrell scores a coveted position in Scotland researching the life and work of artist Cornelia van der Zee, she decodes clues hidden in two 16th-century portraits. Originally attributed to Van der Zee, the paintings contain traces of another artist entirely: a mysterious young woman named Mira. Risking both her professional reputation and safety, Zari tracks Mira along the pilgrim’s route of Camino de Santiago in the rugged Pyrenees mountains—and plunges deep into the past.

1500: Mira’s own harrowing tale unfolds as Zari’s quest to uncover the truth intensifies. Born during a time wracked by war, plague, and shifting political boundaries, Mira grows up in a Pyrenees convent believing she is an orphan, unaware of the dark secret in her past. Inexplicably, she is singled out to receive an education normally reserved for men, including training in the arts. But when her peaceful existence is shattered, Mira must brave the world beyond the convent’s gates to learn the devastating story of her origins—and find the strength to face those who would destroy her.”

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: LAKOTA WOMAN

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: LAKOTA WOMAN

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our February read is Lakota Woman, a memoir by Mary Brave Bird. Check out the plot summary below!

“Mary Brave Bird grew up fatherless in a one-room cabin, without running water or electricity, on a South Dakota reservation. Rebelling against the aimless drinking, punishing missionary school, narrow strictures for women, and violence and hopelessness of reservation life, she joined the new movement of tribal pride sweeping Native American communities in the sixties and seventies and eventually married Leonard Crow Dog, the movement’s chief medicine man, who revived the sacred but outlawed Ghost Dance.

Lakota Woman is a unique document unparalleled in American Indian literature, a story of death, of determination against all odds, and of the cruelties perpetrated against American Indians during the last several decades. It is also a deeply moving account of a woman’s triumphant struggle to survive in a hostile world.”

SAVING ʻŌHIʻA, HAWAIʻI’S SACRED TREE

Join us for “Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaiʻi’s Sacred Tree”, a documentary highlighting the significance of Hawaiʻi’s native tree, ʻōhiʻa, and the current threat of Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death that is impacting thousands of acres of forest on Hawaiʻi Island. In 2018, Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death was confirmed on Kauaʻi in at least four locations.

This film provides an in-depth look into the cultural and ecological importance of Hawaiʻi’s keystone species–and the potential impact of the current epidemic.

Kim S. Rogers, Kauaʻi ROD Outreach Specialist of the Kauaʻi Invasive Species Committee, will be present following the screening for Q & A session.

“Saving ʻŌhiʻa, Hawaiʻi’s Sacred Tree” was produced by Club Sullivan TV for the University of Hawaiʻi Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species. You can learn more about the documentary here. For more information on Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death, click here.

We’re kicking off with Jack Cheng’s See You in the Cosmos. Check out the plot summary below!

“11-year-old Alex Petroski loves space and rockets, his mom, his brother, and his dog Carl Sagan–named for his hero, the real-life astronomer. All he wants is to launch his golden iPod into space the way Carl Sagan (the man, not the dog) launched his Golden Record on the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. From Colorado to New Mexico, Las Vegas to L.A., Alex records a journey on his iPod to show other lifeforms what life on earth, his earth, is like. But his destination keeps changing. And the funny, lost, remarkable people he meets along the way can only partially prepare him for the secrets he’ll uncover–from the truth about his long-dead dad to the fact that, for a kid with a troubled mom and a mostly not-around brother, he has way more family than he ever knew.”

So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life—until the unthinkable happens.”
