Stay Grounded, Take Flight
Both Janee’ Kassanavoid and Pi‘ikea Kekīhenelehuawewehiikekauʻōnohi Lopes combine a strongly rooted connection to the earth with the effortless grace and energy that one can only attain through countless hours of study and practice. For Janee’, her dedication to the hammer throw brought her to the 2022 World Track and Field Championships where she became the first Indigenous woman to medal. Pi‘ikea’s connection to the ancestral art of hula has not only enabled her to carry on the legacy of her forebears, but also earned her the title of 2022 Miss Aloha Hula.
