2015 Conference Theme

The theme this year is "Mo'olelo - Stories of Hawai`i," showcasing the rich stories coming out
of the Hawaiian oral tradition and put into chant or song.  Many mele describe people and
places, but this year we take it a step further and explore mele which describe the
experiences of people and the events which occurred at those places, including historic happenings, daily life events or love relationships - the stories of Hawai`i.
