Focus on Windward Oahu
Konane, Kimi Apiki, Francine Gora
Kimi Apiki watches as Francine Gora, chairwoman of Ko'olaupoko Hawaiian Civic Club's Na Mea Hawaii, helps Jill Akana lacquer her konane game board (papamu) Feb. 11 at Na'oneala'a Park in Kaneohe. Konane is an ancient Hawaiian strategy board game that was played by ali'i and commoners alike. The workshop was held to share Hawaiian culture with the community as part of the club's 75th anniversary celebration.
