Readings of oral history narratives collected and edited by the UH Mānoa's Center for Oral History will be presented at the Pohai Nani auditorium (45-090 Namoku Street, Kane`ohe) on Thursday, February 24, from 7-8 p.m.
The program will feature readings, presented by storyteller Nyla Fujii-Babb and actor Wil Ha`o, followed by a question-and-answer session led by the Center for Oral History's Warren Nishimoto and Michi Kodama-Nishimoto.
Fujii-Babb will read Martina Kekuewa Fuentevilla's narrative, "Hanai Granddaughter," focused on the Native Hawaiian lifestyle of early 20th century Kona.  Ha`o will read rice and taro farmer Nelson Ah Hoy Chun's narrative, "Nature's Work," focused on the lifestyle experienced in the Big Island's Waipi`o Valley.
The event is part of the Pohai Nani Retirement Community's Māhele `Ike Lecture Series on Hawai`i.  Admission is free and open to the public.
