Cachola to discuss life, legacy of Kamehameha the Great
Educator and cultural historian Fred Cachola will discuss “The Life and Legacy of Kamehameha the Great” at a free lecture from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Building A Council Chamber at the West Hawaii Civic Center.
Cachola is an authority on the accomplishments of Hawaii’s first monarch. Cachola will focus on the birth of Kamehameha and events that influenced the place names of Kohala. He’ll also discuss Kamehameha’s enduring legacy: the mana and character of Hawaii’s most famous hero and inspirational leader.
A member of Malama Na Wahi Pana ‘O Kohala who was born and raised in that district, Cachola is retired after a career in the state Department of Education and at Kamehameha Schools, where he served as director of the Education Extension Division for 25 years until 1997. These days he is a volunteer docent at ‘Iolani Palace and Washington Place, as well as helping with numerous educational programs in Kohala and Kona.
Cachola’s presentation is part of the Hanohano ‘o Kona — Honoring Kona community lecture series presented by Kona Historical Society and the Hawaii Council for the Humanities, in cooperation with the county.
