We are so happy to announce the launch of our song, Hana Days gone By (Aunty Puna's Son), written, sung and created by the 4th and 5th grade students, our Voices of the Earth Artists, of Hana Elementary School.
The song was inspired by the their beloved Kupuna, Aunty Puna, who shared with them the stories and wisdom of her life growing up in the remote area of Hana, Maui. #TiLeafSlide
Our Mahalo to Beth and Grant Senner, the 4th and 5th grade teachers who welcomed us into their classrooms! And our humble gratitude to Fawn Helekahi, our Artist Mentor for this song, for so graciously sharing her voice and talent!
When We Shine Foundation is profoundly grateful to The Atherton Family Foundation for their sponsorship, and for our partnership with Hana Arts who helped to make this project possible! Mahalo Nui Loa! Love you Aunty Puna!
Please enjoy our story... and as Aunty Puna would say, "Get back to your roots, and wear your Aloha with pride!"
