‘Pelehonuamea — Volcanism’ is focus of talk
The community is invited to a special talk on “Pelehonuamea — Volcanism” by Pualani Kanaka‘ole Kanahele, president of the Edith Kanaka‘ole Foundation and director of the Hawaiian Traditional Knowledge Research program at Hawaii Community College, at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Part of the ongoing fourth annual Volcano Awareness Month observance, the program will be presented in room 100 of the University Classroom Building at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, 200 W. Kawili St., in Hilo. Admission is free.
Kanahele, author of the award-winning “Ka Honua Ola,” will provide a Hawaiian perspective on volcanism — the “fire” family and its function.
Details of Volcano Awareness Month activities are posted on the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory website at hvo.wr.usgs.gov. For more information, email askHVO@usgs.gov or call 967-8844.
The annual observance is sponsored by HVO, in cooperation with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park; UH-Hilo, the Kanaka‘ole Foundation and Hawaii County Civil Defense.
This month also marks the 30th anniversary of the start of Kilauea’s current East Rift Zone eruption, which began on Jan. 3, 1983.
