The 8th annual Makahiki Kuilima took place on January 12, with about 1,500 people in attendance. The event is an annual fundraiser for the Ke Kula ‘o S.M. Kamakau school. It is part of the school’s mission of community outreach to share the Hawaiian culture.
A highlight of the event is Hawaiian sledding or he'e holua, it is the only active sledding track anywhere in the islands.
“Makahiki Kuilima gives our students, and the entire school ohana, the opportunity to hear and speak Hawaiian outside of the school setting and to practice a living culture,” said event organizer Anne Stone.
The event also includes a Kukini Kuilima 5K run for all ages. About 100 people participated in the 3-mile trail race.
