On August 25, 2012, Tomomi Hibikiya, a recent HTIC alumna, and Mikako Kuruma and I, both current HTIC Liberal Arts’ students, joined the members of Halau Ke’ala Oka ’iliahi in performing hula at the Malama Ohana Festival in Kapiolani Park.

This was the first time for me to perform hula onstage. Kapena, a popular local group, played live as we danced and entertained many people who came to see our performance. This was a special memory for me as a hula dancer. Although I just started hula in April of this year, I am happy to be in HTIC’s Polynesian Club. I look forward to learning even more about Polynesian dance with my “kumu,” which means “teacher” in Hawaiian.

Anyone interested in Polynesian dance is welcomed in our club. I look forward to performing again in the local community!

"One of the reasons I joined Projects Abroad was to research opportunities for our students to do volunteer work overseas and, of course, to contribute in some way myself," says Douglas Fuqua, the Vice Chancellor
at the Hawaii Tokai International College. Coming to Projects Abroad Cape Town for two weeks, Douglas volunteered at the Children's Centre in Vrygrond, a township in Cape Town.

Dr. Toake Endoh, an HTIC professor of political science, participated in the June 2012 CISS/Keynote Conference held in Prague, Czech Republic. Dr. Endoh presented her recent research regarding foreign immigrants displaced by natural disasters in a panel discussion focusing on international migration. The panel offered a very vibrant and amicable discussion among scholars of multiple disciplines and offered these scholars a chance to build a network among peer researchers from Asia, Europe, and the Continental U.S. In addition to the conference, "centuries-old, gorgeous Prague architecture, as well as refreshing Czech beer, became other trip highlights!"
