Kanaka ʻai pōhaku



In the Hawaiian "Stone Age"



Archeologists refer to the material culture of ancient Hawai'i as neolithic, since its basis was via the use of stone tools. In a volcanic setting, metal-bearing ores were unavailable, so the development of tools and weapons was based on a foundation of available materials that included coral-derived limestone, sedimentary sandstone, and a variety of volcanically-derived rocks such as pumice, dense,… Continue

Aloha Ohu, e kala mai, i haven't been on the site for a while. I am still interested in Oli. Have been so busy with work and other things I haven't had much time to think about adding more to my plate, but I am still definitely interested. Was it still on Tuesdays that you held class? If that is correct that might work perfectly for me as I am off work on tuesdays early and may be able to attend. Let me know.

I see your profile and am so interested in learning much from you. I was born and raised on O'ahu in Kalihi. I left for the mainland and was gone for 18 years. I just returned this past August and hope to stay home for good. I am a lomilomi practitioner, and I don't mean to say it in a boastful manner. Iwould just like to learn more of my culture especially oli, and olelo Hawai'i. I love my culture but have been away for so long that I feel I need to learn. Better late then never. I would like to keep in touch.

Mahalo,
Kauhi
