We welcomed two new faces this month – Jonah Dias and Keahiahi Long.
Jonah Dias is from Hilo, Hawai‘i and is a 2011 graduate of Kamehameha Schools Kea‘au. He is currently a senior in the Academy of Creative Media program at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and hopes to work in the film industry after graduating with his B.A. Jonah says he is interested in film because he “appreciates learning from stories and sharing stories.” He shared that he’s happy to be at ‘Ulu‘ulu because he likes to learn about the history of Hawai‘i and its people and ‘Ulu‘ulu enables him to do so through film. When he’s not here at ‘Ulu‘ulu, Jonah also serves as a Production Technician for PBS Hawaii.
Keahiahi Long is from O‘ahu and is a graduate student in the Master of Library & Information Science program at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. As part of her summer fellowship with the Dance Heritage Coalition (DHC), Keahiahi spent the first part of her summer interning at the Museum of Performance + Design in San Francisco. She will be fulfilling the DHC’s practicum requirement by working at ‘Ulu‘ulu for the next 6 weeks helping to research dance materials in our collections.
We are thrilled to have both Jonah and Keahiahi with us!
