Traditions of the Pacific presents, "Perspectives of Health: From Birth to Death". An educational series in partnership with the Department of Native Hawaiian Health's Native Hawaiian Center of Excellence at the John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.

The culmination of the series takes us to the setting years of the life span. In Hawaiian tradition, kūpuna (elders) are venerated centerpieces of society. Kūpuna attain respect and longevity through maiau (meticulous work) and maʻemaʻe (cleanliness). Penetrating and revealing aspects of Hawaiian views of living and aging will be discussed by esteemed Kahu Emeritis David Kaupu, of Kaumakapili Church. Kahu Kaupu continues to be active as a Coordinator of Hawaiian Ministry for the Council of Hawaiian Congregational Churches and conducts classes using the Baibala Hemolele to teach both Christianity and ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi to congregation members.
