Community of Hei Workshop

Location: Campus Center 301

As part of our efforts to promote and support indigenous health and wellness on our campuses, we are launching the third year of the Community of Hei workshop series. Our theme this year is "Connecting to Self, Connecting to Others". Hei are traditional string figures that are powerful in their ability to sharpen focus, create intentions, and to capture/celebrate outcomes. The word "Hei" means to capture in the Hawaiian language. A culture nearly lost, be a part of the revival as we learn hei for personal, professional, and community well-being.
