Get into the spirit of Halloween at JCCH: For spine-tingling fun, join JCCH to hear Lopaka Kapanui deliver 8 Obake tales sure to raise the hair on the back of your neck! 

Lopaka Kapanui is a native Hawaiian storyteller, writer, actor, kumu hula, cultural practitioner, former professional wrestler, husband, father, and grandpa. Lopaka is better known as "the ghost guy," as one of Hawai'i's foremost storytellers. His repertoire of spooky tales takes listeners on a journey with between-world spirits and Hawaiian mythology. For over 20 years, Lopaka has been gathering stories from hundreds of people who have shared their stories with him, making him a repository for some of our islands' most teeth-chattering tales. You will be thrilled with the stories, and also gain knowledge of the history and legends of O‘ahu and Hawai‘i.
