Late January can be depressing; It’s cold, It’s bleak, and there’s a whole lot of winter left. This makes it a great time to look back in history to January 18, 1778, when Captain Cook landed where we all wish we were right now: Hawaii. Let’s take a quick armchair vacation to the Rainbow State:
Life?s a Beach
You may not be able to do your homework on the beach?but doing it in front of a live beach cam is the next best thing. To further the illusion, listen to Hawaiian radio live online. Thank modern technology for the virtual relief from cold weather and snowy streets!
The Story of Hula
If you think hula is just entertainment for visitors to the Islands, think again. This NPR ?All Things Considered? segment explores just a little of the rich heritage bound up in hula dance.
Back to School
Want a deeper understanding of ?Hawaiian history, language and cultural practices?? Kamehameha Schools? Distance Learning program offers online courses for adult enrichment. Courses are either free or inexpensive ($25) and most include elements of family involvement?in keeping with the Hawaiian tradition of ohana.
