Every April, the town of Hilo on Hawaiʻi Island buzzes with excitement as ʻōlapa hula (dancers) from near and far gather to participate in the world-renowned Merrie Monarch Hula Festival. For the past 16 years, before competition begins, the festival’s opening ceremony has served as a cherished space for faculty and staff from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo and Hawaiʻi Community College to share mele, or songs, and engage in traditional protocol.

Among the dancers, @kcc_chancellor and @hawaiicc interim chancellor
