Episode 202: Hawaiʻi State Archives

Hawaiʻi is a very special place with a rich history.  But before we focus on the many aspects that make Hawaiian culture unique, we wanted to start the new season from the beginning.  How was the Hawaiian Islands formed?

From a geologically perspective, itʻs about volcanoes.  But in a Hawaiian perspective, volcanoes are associated with the deity "Pele."  In this episode, we speak with Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park and Kumu Hula Nālani Kanakaʻole of Hālau o Kekuhi to learn about how Hawaiʻi was created and who Pele is.
