I-Fest 2016– One World, Many Stories– highlighted the importance of storytelling and self-expression in the formation of culture and identity. I-Fest featured performances from renowned storyteller Oba William King, Spoken Word poet Kealoha, filmmaker Eliaichi Kimaro, and headline artist Kane Smego, an international SLAM Poet.

Both Kane and Kealoha led workshops at 2 pm for students prior to the event; those students performed on stage with Kane and Kealoha during the I-Festivities.
