She will share the art of Hawaiian Storytelling. She belongs to Halau Pua Ali?i ?Ilima under the direction of Kumu Hula Victoria Holt Takamine and has taught the Kaua?i branch of Aunty Vicky?s halau for many years. Mauli Ola?s deep friendship with Aunty Nona Beamer led to many exciting projects and learning opportunities including becoming Aunty Nona?s protégé in the art of hula ki?i or Hawaiian Puppetry . Hawaiian history is passed down orally so the art of storytelling is important to the preservation of Hawaiian culture. Stories bring the past to life, help us envision the future and connect us to each other and the present. Through their stories every culture honors the spiritual guides, people, animals, plants and places that make them unique, while acknowledging the basic truths that ring true for all mankind throughout the ages. The evening?s presentation will be a very interactive one so come prepared to sing, dance and make merry! Mauli Ola would like to honor the late Fredrick Bruce Wichman for his amazing legacy of stories and historical writings about Kaua?i. Much of what Mauli Ola shares about Kaua?i comes from his wonderful books. Mauli's and future presentations are made possible by funding to the Storybook Theatre of Hawaii from the Hawaii Tourism Authority's Kukulu Ola – Living Hawaiian Culture Program. The purpose of the program is to strengthen the relationship between the visitor industry and the Hawaiian community by presenting experiences and activities that are interesting and educational to people of all walks of life, and supportive of Hawaiian cultural practitioners, craftsmen, musicians, dancers, and other artists that preserve and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture. The Storybook Theatre of Hawaii is located at 3814 Hanapepe Rd. Hanapepe HI 96816. For more information about this or other events call STH at (808)335-0712.

The National Day of Prayer has deep historical roots in this country, having been declared in 1775 by the Continental Congress in forming a new nation. It was later recognized by first President George Washington in 1789. In 1952, the Congress passed a bill proclaiming National Day of Prayer. And on May 5, 1988, President Reagan signed into law official recognition of the first Thursday in May annually as the National Day of Prayer. Founded in 2005, the Interfaith Roundtable is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. IROK meets monthly, normally on the last Friday at 12 noon at Lihue Hongwanji Temple, 3-3530 Kuhio Highway, Lihue.
