Workshops at 10:00 AM & 2:00 PM

Free with Museum admission

Please join us for a special family event at The Mariners’ Museum and Park as we explore the rich variety of Polynesian storytelling traditions. From stories about family history, to tales about the gods, to the arts of hula and tapa cloth, Polynesian cultures have developed wondrous ways to remember their past and share their traditions with their communities. Ashley O’Donovan, an educator with her own Polynesian heritage, will share some of her traditions and teach us how we all can tell stories with our own families.

Space is limited, so please RSVP below:
