“Anahā” Sculpture Dedication Ceremony

In a moving ceremony on February 18, 2022, a new bronze sculpture that graces the front of EHCC was dedicated to scholar, cultural leader and retired kumu hula Dr. Pualani Kanahele Kanaka’ole. The sculpture, created by artist Michael Shewmaker, was given the name “Anahā” (Reflection) by Dr. Kanaka’ole. Her family members honored the sculpture with traditional hula and a chant, and Dr. Kanaka’ole presented insights into the nuances of “Anahā,” explaining that it means “the reflection of light, not shadow” and it implies progression, which she compared to the work that EHCC undertakes.
