Ho‘omaika‘i to our @kapooloku and @kuliamakapiolani graduates! 

During their Ho‘opuka Native Hawaiian Student and Hawaiian Studies Graduation Reception our graduates were able to share their story behind their kāpala design and reflect upon their time at Kapi’olani CC. 

Each student mindfully carves their own ‘ohe kapala taking inspiration from their journey and life experiences.
