Pua’ikeana’s Polynesian Showcase: Hiki No! – OC, 11/10/11

Hiki No

We don’t usually post college club events, but since there are so few Polynesian events around, this one might be interesting to you!

“Aloha everyone! Pua’ikeana, Chapman [University]’s Hawai’i club will be holding our annual Polynesian Showcase from 7pm-8:30pm on November 10 in Attallah Piazza! This year’s theme, Hiki No, means “can do” or “together”. This means a lot to us, as we are working together as a club to put together this event to share with you.

Come join us to watch dance performances, listen to music, and to have fun!

Best thing about it, IT’S FREE!!! Invite anyone and everyone, this is our way of sharing the Aloha spirit with Chapman and the community.”
