The non-profit Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center hosts a free talk on July 21 as part of their “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace” Brown Bag Lunch Series. Talks are Third Thursdays from 12 noon to 1 pm in the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney at 655 Kilauea Avenue in Hilo.
This month’s speaker is Shana Logan on “The Meaning of Aloha” and traditional Hawaiian practices of peace.
“The Aloha Spirit Law (HRS 5-7.5) and Ke Kanawai Mamalahoe (Article 9, Sec. 10 of the Hawai‘i State Constitution) are important historical edicts that can be powerful tools in resolving today’s legal and ethical issues–through traditional, peaceful practices in the operations and decisions of government and in the personal lives of its citizens,” says Logan.
In this talk, Logan shares her mana‘o on the literal and metaphorical meanings of Aloha and accompanying Hawaiian values.
Shana Logan is a native Hawaiian writer and educator. She is the owner of Aloha Consultants, a small local media company based in Hilo. She received her bachelor’s degree in Communications from Hawai’i Pacific University and a Liberal Arts associate’s degree with an emphasis in Hawaiian Studies from the University of Hawai’i Windward Community College.
Ku‘ikahi’s Brown Bag Lunch Series is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch, enjoy an informal and educational talk-story session, and meet others interested in “Finding Solutions, Growing Peace.”
This lunch-and-learn series is made possible thanks in part to funding from the Atherton Family Foundation. For more information, contact Ku‘ikahi Administrative & Program Assistant Jenifer Aveiro at 935-7844 x 1 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit www.hawaiimediaiton.org.
