Eia Hawaiʻi Lecture Series: Lily Dudoit

Location: Campus Center 301

Eia Hawaiʻi Lecture Series: Keauhou, Where the Current
Continues to Renew Itself

Lily Lyons Dudoit is the Director of Culture and Leisure Activities at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay. Her connection to Keauhou has grown through the years under the care of Aunty Lily Haʻanio Kong and the preservation of Kaukulaelae in Keauhou. Born and raised in Kailua-Kona, Lily is living her passion each day at the Sheraton Kona. Committed to ensuring the land and its stories will live on for generations. Lily says “our Kupuna have left us gifts on this ʻāina, our kuleana is to look to the past for their wisdom; what does it mean to us today? The learning can take us into the future, for ancient wisdom is timeless.” Keauhou has been the center of many “new currents” in our Hawaiian history, it is these currents that has intrigued Lily and continues to drive her passion for Keauhou.

Lily will share stories of Kaukulaelae, Keauhou and the sites or “makana” that are still there today. Heiau Kanikanikaʻula, the Kuʻula, and the Menehune Tree just to name a few. She will connect the currents of time and how Keauhou is still a place of renewal. You will hear of her journey inspired by Aunty Lily Haʻanio Kong and how the currents of Keauhou have shaped and guided what she does today.

Kīpuka Native Hawaiian Student Center is cosponsoring this event in collaboration with the Keauhou-Kahalu`u Education Group, Kamehameha Schools and the Kohala Center. The aim of these workshops is to develop a Hawaiian World View and the theme is Environmental Kinship. The lecture is free and open to the public.

This workshop will be repeated on Friday, March 14th in Kona at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay from 5:30-7:00 p.m. for their Puana Ka `Ike Lecture Series.
