 Shannon opened a Facebook page for Na Wa'a...click on the link and sign up for a FREE account if you haven't already. Then search for Na Wa'a Hanakahi Educational and Cultural Organization--hit the LIKE button and you are IN!


Mike started this WIKI and there are a lot of great tools and uses that would be beneficial for Na Wa'a when we are planning events. Some things need to happen before we ALL can see the value of how it can be used...At the bottom of this page, Mike put a YouTube video on to show us the potential of WIKI. I'm in here trying to see if I can enhance what has already been started... (any other geek wannabees--let's do this!)


When you get the link in your e-mail INBOX or FB page, come on in and take a look around...Add your mana`o to this and at our next Kai Honua or Fundraiser--let's see how using technology can help us get more organized. This also helps those who are not able to come to practice know what's going on....same with FB page!


This is a real wiki!  Please feel free to edit this page, create new pages, add content, and invite others in the Na Wa'a Hanakahi ohana to use the wiki.


Loke's school is having a concert and fundraising event on the 14th of February.  Check out the poster in the events section.  You can click on it to down load it and plaster it around town if you'd like. 


I put some information about our upcoming car wash event on the fund raising page.  Lets get coordinated on this event and raise some money for our club! 


Here's a video I found on YouTube that offers a short and simple explanation of a wiki and how it could be used to coordinate our group.
