Hawaii Preparatory Academy’s Lower School held its annual May Day celebration on Friday, May 2, at the school’s Gates Performing Arts Center. This year’s program, Ho`ii Kahiki, honored the traditions and practices of early Polynesians, as the journey of Malama Honua begins and Hokule`a prepares for her sail.

Members of the fifth grade class represented Na Ali`i o Hawai`i, with fourth grade conch shell blowers Braeden Samura, Cache Van Tassell, Tre Walker, and Bear Wawner.
