WHERE TO MEET: Participants will meet NaHHA staff between 7:45am and 8:00am at Kahi Halia Aloha Burial Mound which is located at the corner of Kapahulu Blvd and Kalakaua Ave just in the front of the park and entrance to the Honolulu Zoo.

WHAT TO WEAR: Please wear comfortable walking shoes or covered footwear. No barefoot participants please! Please dress accordingly, cotton fabrics and dry weave technology tend to breathe better on hot and humid days. If you have a handheld fan please feel free to bring that. Shirts and pants, shorts, and/or skirts are required. Participants in "Beachwear", for example swimsuits with no cover-up, or surf shorts with no shirt, will not be allowed to participate.

WHAT TO BRING: Participants should bring plenty of water. Please wear sunscreen. Participants are also encouraged to hydrate before coming on the tour. Hats, fans, and other "sunny day" apparel such as sunglasses or umbrellas are encouraged.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: This guided walking tour will help participants to learn the unique cultural legacy of Waikīkī. We will explore the lives of Hawaii’s leaders in both ancient and modern times. We will visit it's many historic sites, discuss important people, and historic events that helped to shape Waikīkī into what we see it as today. Participants will build an awareness of the significance of the “Wahi Pana” of Waikīkī as both a sacred place to Hawaiians and a living history in the modern world. It is our kuleana (responsibility) as hosts of our place to understand and know the lineage of our historical leaders, their cultural legacy, and how their decisions impact our community in modern times.

Any participants with health concerns that may inhibit them during the walk or may be agrivated by the heat or sun should also identify themselves to NaHHA staff. Other documentation will also be required of participants to further NaHHA's mission and goals. Mahalo for your participation and we look forward to seeing all of you soon!
