NOVEMBER 18th - DECEMBER 18th
FEATURING BETELGEUSE OF ORION
‘Ike Hōkū (star knowledge) is of the Martha Noyes lineage and is centered at Kūkaniloko, O‘ahu. Calendar systems are unique to place, era and lineage.
Kā‘elo refers to Betelgeuse in Orion and signifies the coming of the winter solstice
The constellation Orion has a strong connection with both Wākea and Kāne in traditional O‘ahu thought. Betelgeuse, the right shoulder of Orion, is its second brightest star. Betelgeuse is intricately connected to very esoteric understandings of the universe. In the different calendar systems known today Kā‘elo may begin in May, June, January or even other times of year.
