Last Workday of 2023

Held on December 16, 2023

On December 16, 2023 we hosted our last workday of 2023. As part of our closing of the year we hosted a Lā ʻOhana Day for this workday where we had some fun with makahiki games, created holiday ornaments out of marine debris, Ipu Pāwahe lessons, and great fun! Mahalo to everyone who joined us and for the helping hands of Pelika Andrade with Na Maka Onaona for leading this day. We can’t wait to see you all again in the new year.

Check out our Instagram for a fun video of this workday!
