Sembrando Herencia 2016 - Borinki Soy! 
The Boricua Migration to Hawaii (1900-1901)
December 3-4, 2016

Join Puerto Rican Folkloric Dance for our 14th original, bilingual musical! Each year, we bring oral history to life through community theater, featuring live music and dance. 

This year we share the story of the Boricua Migration to Hawaii in 1900. This play will honor the brave men, women and children who went in search of a better life after Hurricane San Ciriaco devastated our Island in 1899. 

Original script by Tekina-eirú Maynard. Thank you to those who shared oral history including: Jesus Reyes (Juncos), Marian Montalbo and Kathy Marzan Montalbo (Hawai'i), and Clifford Pagan (Maui). More details this Fall!
