We are coming to you live from the ʻAʻaliʻikūhonua Creative Arts Center on the campus of Seabury Hall in Makawao. The inoa of this center speaks to the aʻaliʻi plant, which is known to stand firm in the earth, often bending, but not breaking when stiff winds blow.
The name Aʻaliʻikūhonua was given by Kealiʻi Reichel to the center in honor of the Erdman ʻohana who, just a few weeks ago, lost their matriarch, Aunty Betsy Erdman.
Aunty Betsy served and supported Seabury Hall for over 50 years in many different roles. We will remember her as ka pouhana, or main post of the Seabury Hall ʻohana.
