So, by popular demand, here are some January, 2012 Kaua'i activities. Some do not have defined dates as yet, but will be held because they have been ongoing for 30 years. As soon has I have been informed of dates, I will pass them along. Please have patience, as I have received numerous inquiries for upcoming info. I receive this info from friends on Kaua'i and organizations to which we belong.

Saturday, January 7, 2012, 10 am - 1 pm
Kaua'i Museum
Filipino Fiesta
St. Raphael Filipino Catholic Church
11 am Kasibulan Filipino Dance Company, followed by Larry Rivera 1 - 2 pm

The Phillipine Islands contain many different ethnic and cultural mixes and heritages and many of them can be found here in Hawai`i. Starting in 1906, Filipinos have been coming to Hawai`i looking for a better life and employment. After the Spanish American War of 1898, like Hawai`i, the Phillipines came under jurisdiction of the United States. The close relationship between Hawai`i and the Phillipines stemmed from their reliance on agriculture, principally sugarcane cultivation, and other commercial interests as leading players in the Pacific economy.

On display are a mix of cultural icons from the Phillipines including hats and knives that are unique in each of the provinces as well as Tero Ball butterfly-sleeve gowns that are familiar to Hawai`i residents.

As part of the exhibit, join the museum and the St. Raphael Filipino Catholic Club on Saturday, January 7, 2012 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. (first Saturday 'Ohana Day). As a special treat the Kasibulan Filipino Dance Company will be performing a variety of dances from different parts of the Phillipines at 11 a.m. Experience food, costume, music, demonstrations and exhibits on this community day held once a month at the Kaua`i Museum at 4428 Rice Street in Lihu`e.

'OKOLEHAU TRAIL HIKE.....North Shore Trail climbs 1,200 ft. on a ridge behind Hanalei with views of Hanalei Bay and North shore. Sierra Club outing open to the public. Strenuous four miles. Jane Schmitt (808) 826-6105.

An editorial comment...although the group lists this as "Strenuous"...we have done this many times, and it is an easy hike. It is pretty much all up hill until you get to the ridge, but it is not too steep. There are also roots crossing the trail in many places...but the views are to die for.


Sunday, 15 January

MAHA’ULEPU COASTAL WALK — Coastal walk, able to visit sinkhole/cave archeological site. Chance to see whales. Sierra Club outing open to the public. Easy to moderate 2.5 miles round trip. Call Allan Rachap at (808) 212-3108.
