The Friends will return and host the OKK Series 2022 event at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, held in the A’o Culture Center. The first scheduled event will be held on Saturday, March 12 after the Outrigger’s opening ceremonies on Tuesday, March 8. Please join us in celebrating the re-opening of a local business who has allowed us to continue our mission, “…to teach the Hawaiian traditions of building, restoring, and caring for canoes.”
March 12, June 18, September 17, November 12.
In preparation for the OKK Series event and opening ceremonies, The Friends repaired the outrigger canoe “Kalele” to be displayed in the Resort’s front entrance and provided a model of the double hull canoe “Hawai’iloa” to be displayed in the A’o Culture Center. These items and more (star compass, handouts, keiki workshops) will be featured in the OKK Series event.
