Ka Molokai Makahiki
Heavy rains poured down on Molokai last Friday night as Lono announced his presence just in time for the island’s annual Makahiki Games. The games’ origins date back to ancient Hawaiian times, but have been growing more and more popular since they were brought back to Molokai a few decades ago. Over 200 athletes from every island except Kaho`olawe participated this year and the competition was as good as it’s ever been.
