September is Aloha Festival Month
In honor of September being The Aloha Festival Month in Hawaii and the surrounding islands, I have made September the Aloha Month here at this blog. My first novel, Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawaii, Her Epic Journey was the story of all that is the Hawaiian Culture. Wai-nani is a celebration of the Hawaiian people of old, especially the powerful Ka’ahumanu – forerunner to the modern woman.
Aloha Festivals is Hawai'i’s premier cultural showcase, a celebration of Hawai'i’s music, dance and history intended to preserve the unique island traditions.
The mission of Aloha Festivals is “to foster the Aloha Spirit through the perpetuation of the Hawaiian culture and the celebration of the diverse customs and traditions of Hawai'i”. Aloha Festivals was first held in 1946 as Aloha Week. It has become a celebration of our Hawaiian Culture integrated with the traditions and cultures of each of the islands through music, dance, cuisine and art. Each year, hundreds of volunteers labor to stage the events, which are enjoyed by nearly one million people.
