On Saturday, Nov. 5 Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam will host the Oahu Council of Hawaiian Civic Club’s 15th Annual Makahiki Festival at Hickam Harbor Beach.
Each year, members from civic clubs give a quick demonstration of ancient Hawaiian sports, and then folks from the audience compete for prizes.
This morning, Shad Kane from the Council of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, and Lt. Cdr. Paki Gomes, who works in the pacific fleet public affairs office, shared their excitement about the upcoming event on Wake Up 2day.
They say this event provides a great opportunity to share the Hawaiian culture with military ‘ohana, and to impart a deeper sense of place and heritage for everyone.
