History of Site and Related Water Issues:
On Hawaii Island we have watershed issues. Due to construction and cattle farming many of the trees and plants that would allow the water that falls to soak into the ground and return to the aquifer instead runs down to the ocean. In addition this water send debris into the ocean which then covers and kills the coral.
This site is important because it is along side the ocean which also receives runoff from the mountain.
Original music by Kumu Hula Leia Lawrence and original music composed by Mariano Gonzalez Calo.
The will be about 20 performers dancing on June 24th.
Part one will be performed by Leia Lawrence and her hula dancers.
Part two will be a contemporary piece by Prince Dance Theatre.
Part three will be danced by 20 dancers from both previous groups plus children and adults involved in the dance scene on the Big Island.
Most of the work we do has an environmental focus. We believe that art can effect change and here on our island our environment is very important to us. We hope to bring people together and raise awareness to our local water issues.
The Kohala Center will be on site to provide information on local groups that work on our various water issues and how one can get involves.
