In this video from our  Hanohano `O Kona Lecture from April 25, 2019 entitled “Place Names Through the Eyes of Kumu Hula and Kama`aina,” Hannah Kihalani Springer and Kumu Keala Ching presented a lecture highlighting the importance of Kona’s place names, their role in preserving history and the perpetuation of history through chant and song. Hannah highlights historic preservation as embodied by learning and using Hawaiian place names, as well as regional and occupational accents and vocabulary. `Oli and mele, presented by Kumu Keala, further illustrates the poetry and beauty of these place names, and the role of these cultural practices in preserving the history of a place through its Hawaiian name.
