Kauai Museum

ON THE MORNING OF SATURDAY, 3 MAY, AT KAUA`I MUSEUM, members of Ka`imi will give a presentation about the Institute’s visit to India in 2007.This will be one of the museum’s `Ohana Saturday programs, which take place on the first Saturday of each month. Admission is always free on those days, so this is a good opportunity for those who have seldom or never availed themselves of that institution’s many resources to become acquainted with it. If you have not seen them, check out the permanent exhibits on natural and human history in the annex. Linda Shimoda, who organizes the ‘Ohana Saturday events, has chosen the theme of “Earth, Air, Fire, Water” for this year. Other presentations in the series have included a demonstration by KCC instructor Wayne Miyata of his ceramic Chinese Bestiary, and a discussion of traditional canoe navigation by the Vaka Taumako Project. Ka `Imi’s performances in Tamil Nadu were based on the elements of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Spirituality, and the 3 May event will illustrate that program. Vi Herbert will also tell about the Kolam Foundation’s program to help eradicate poverty in Tamil Nadu. It was Vi who made Ka `Imi’s visit to India possible. The museum is at 4428 Rice St. Lihu’e (across from First Hawaiian Bank and the Post Office). On Saturdays, it is open from 1000 to 1600.
