Ho'omālamalama: Hawaiian word meaning "To Enlighten" and brighten. It is the name given to the director of MANAIA Ohana and creator of MANAIA Design & Production. [MDP] We chose to use it as our dot.com because it fits the feeling behind our site... to ENLIGHTEN.
Updates coming soon...
For about 10 years we've participated in
the annual NATIVE DAYZ. The host, Terri Williams of the Puyallup Tribe, has made a place for us.
Our na keiki were literally born into this. [Ohana joke] We look forward to this particular performance because it's our finale show of the season.
We actually start with the Nisqually PowWow and end with Puyallup's NATIVE DAYZ.
