My name is Lokelani! That’s Hawaiian for rose blossom. All my friends call me Loke, so you can too! I play the conch shell in the Rainbow Pals. Do you know what a conch shell is? It’s like a trumpet, made by the ocean! Toot-toot-tarooo!
Of course, I’m not always playing music. Sometimes I’m skipping! I think it’s the best way to get around! It’s so great to spend a day skipping along the sandy shores of a beach! Sometimes I just go skipping, even if I have nowhere to go. Skipping here, skipping there—skipping everywhere!
Here is a video of me spending time with my friends The Rainbow Pals…
You can’t make just one! When I bake a batch of cookies, there’s always enough for all the Rainbow Pals. I love bringing fresh cookies to a luau and making everyone happy. Yum, yum!
A bunny in the tropics?
You might be wondering: what is a bunny doing in the South Pacific? Rabbits were first brought to Australia in 1788, so we’ve been around for a while! The tropics are my home. I love it here!
Everyone in the Rainbow Pals plays an important role. Playing the conch is a big responsibility! The conch carries the melody of all our songs. That means it always rings out loud and clear, so I’m always careful to practice!
