The second season of the podcast consists of 12 episodes beginning in January 2022 with a shift in focus from moʻolelo and kaʻao (stories) on Hawaiʻi Island to Hawaiian cultural practices that inform us how to meaningfully and sustainably interact with the place we live based on those traditional knowledge systems.
Season II episodes will be released throughout the year on the Hilo moon phase of every malama (lunar month) to raise awareness of this ancient yet relevant practice of keeping time and will feature guests who are knowledgeable in various Hawaiian cultural practices. This segment was released on the Hilo moon phase of Kāʻelo (January 2).
Look for our next episode to be released on Hilo moon phase of Kaulua (February 1).
