Merrie Monarch Festival

Merrie Monarch Festival 2013

UH ʻohana enjoyed this weekend’s Merrie Monarch Festival in Hilo. Here I am with UH Hilo Chancellor Don Straney and Miss Aloha Hula Manalani Hokoana-English.

Manalani just happens to be the niece of Lui Hokoana, a graduate of UH Hilo and the university’s associate vice president for student affairs. She is an alumnus of Maui Community College and Kapiʻolani Community College.
