Love the Story Map feature! SO wonderful because although Manai is an amazing storyteller, my brain appreciates the visuals! And all of your voices help bring me into a calm space! And Manai’s voice is so energetic! Leilani’s clarification of Mokuola as “Coconut Island” helps orient the average listener to the geography, then reinforces the use of the traditional name! Fabulous!
And the conclusion/review at the end was very nice to have to ensure we remember the information!
Mahalo for this wonderful resource! Can’t wait to hear future episodes!
