Great Show!

 

Osiyo, KBOOers!

What fun we had this morning on Tillicum Wawa! Lively discussion and music, chanting and ukelele playing...

Truly, there was a mixture of people! We had a man in his 20's and one almost 80. I loved that a strong native woman led the show with her son sitting in, playing ukelele before he heads off to adventure on the Islands.

John Talley honored us with a rare appearance at the station and told a couple of great stories.

We had a chance to talk with our friends, Iokepa, Hawiian spirtiual leader of the Return Voyage and his wife, Inette a gifted writer and journalist.
