Our Hālāwai 'ohana Sara Saltman led a night of mo'olelo to kick off the Halloween weekend festivities. This Mauli Ola virtual gathering featured a mo'olelo workshop where each 'ohana made their own mo'olelo book!
During this workshop, we built scents from memory with Roger Alcain, founder of MĀHŪ. We reminisced about childhood memories, travels across the ponds, and our first leis, and we'll built scents that brought them all back.
Roger J. Alcain is a dreamer with a passion for life, a travel addict with an endless curiosity to see and learn. He was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i in the town of Kona and is currently based in New York City. The idea behind his brand Māhū and it's products comes from a wish to share a piece of himself and where he comes from with the world. He believes that everyone's happy space should be celebrated, and that being in between is a wonderful place to be!
Yuri Kochiyama was a lifelong political activist who supported a wide range of social justice and human rights movements more than fifty years, including the civil rights and antiwar movements and the fight for fight for ethnic studies, the anti-apartheid movement, the struggle for Puerto Rican independence, reparations for Japanese Americans, African Americans and Native Americans, the rights of political prisoners in the United States, nuclear disarmament, and movements for racial and economic justice and sovereignty all over the world.
Joining us to discuss her legacy and share was her granddaughter Akemi Kochiyama, co-coordinator of the Yuri Kochiyama Archives Project and co-editor of Passing It On: A Memoir by Yuri Kochiyama (2004, UCLA Asian American Studies Center Press).

Kānaka Maoli Chef Kini, a Michelin rated island boy, invites us to bring Hawai`i into our kitchen with a basic inamona (relish or garnish) recipe. We learned how to substitute Hawaiian flavors when living on the U.S. mainland and inspired us to learn our individual flavor profile and find comfort in cooking for a post-coronavirus world.
He demonstrated his Taro ‘Inamona Crusted Fish with ‘Ulu Pave recipe and luckily for us, not only did he share his recipe, but this gathering was also recorded so we can follow along and make this delicious dish at home!
