Week of Gratitude: Day 7 Today we show our gratitude for the continued support of @manamaoli! Each year they provide us with multiple kumu who share with our keiki the love of mele.

Mahalo to all the kumu and staff for providing us with not only music and ʻukulele classes, but also opportunities to be a part of much larger and exciting projects. Mahalo nui!
