Long before the American Missionaries arrived and formulated a written Hawaiian language, ancient Native Hawaiians expressed themselves in the form of storytelling - otherwise known as Mo’olelo. These stories of events and experiences would be passed down from kupuna (elder) to keiki (child) for generations. Mo’olelo is translated to the English word “Story”. “Mo’o” meaning succession, and “Olelo” meaning words. While everyday holds a new and exciting story to tell, here are some of the more notable events that we were able to capture.
