E ho'olohe mai... listen closely, can you hear them? It is a lovely day in Nu'uanu as Kili and Tutu prepare for the great lu'au. The King--Kauikeaouli, Kamehameha the Third--is hosting a feast at Kaniakapupu in celebration of La Ho'iho'i Ea, Sovereignty Restoration Day. Join Kili as he takes in the sights and sounds at this joyous event, and along the way discovers the wondrous singing tree snails that are the namesake of the King's historic residence. KILI AND THE SINGING TREE SNAILS gives a glimpse into the days when the Hawaiian kingdom flourished, and shows the importance of aloha 'aina--caring for the land and perpetuating Hawaii's native culture
