Ke Ao Maoli
Sabra my friend! so good to hear from you and thank you for coming to hang out with us! Thats awesome about your exhibit and please post pictures when you get a chance. We were able to do a couple of class exhibits at Honolulu and Kapolei Hale and Leeward Community College and they were great. Yeah you know these kane all wanting to wear the maoli malo and not the muslin ones when they are out and about, but until their na wahine learn how, guess theyre on their own! having them plant and make tools is great, especially since that was what they did traditionally as their part of the kapa work. And yes we do still make the kapa kits... have them email email@example.com to order or they can call 696-4954 for info. Please keep us updated on Kaua'i kapa goings on. and Momi, thank you, those wauke are just the joy of my life and nothing makes me feel more waiwai than to see this beautiful (and expanding) grove of trees. and hey hey, no genius here... just love to share the work that we love so much!
heres another pic from our exhibit last year. Also, the mala wauke in that picture is in Makaha... my Ka'ala mala is a JUNGLE and we are actually going to clear another more open space to plant again in an orderly cultivated fashion...its the only way to keep an upper hand on these guys.
