Ke Alanui Polohiwa a Kāne: Summer Solstice Conversations

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday June 17

10:00 AM  –  11:00 AM

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to MHC in person in early July. In the meantime, we are excited to invite you to a Virtual Kahaukani Conversations event, in anticipation of the Summer Solstice. 


As the Summer Solstice is upon us (Saturday, June 20) we have invited special guest(s) to share their interpretation of the significance of this solar phenomenon with the goal of better understanding ourselves in this place (Hawai‘i) and time. This conversation will take place next Wednesday, June 17.  


On June 20, the sun will reach Ke Alanui Polohiwa a Kāne (The Black Glistening Path of Kāne), its northernmost point in the sky.  Why is this significant?  How might this have been interpreted through history?
