Today, you can visit Aunty’s daughter, Mele, at the shop.  Mele has so much of her mother in her, and she is dedicated to carrying on the family tradition of Hawaiian featherwork.  If you don’t want to make a feather lei, you can also purchase some of their amazing work at the shop.  Or if you want to just get a taste for Hawaiian featherwork and see some incredible pieces, stop in just to say hi. 🙂
“It’s been good because, I got the opportunity before I leave, because Iʻm going off to college in a couple weeks, and my grandma sailed the Hōkūleʻa 16 years ago to Oʻahu, and I got to greet her yesterday, picking her up on the canoe…so it was a good experience.” says Tiana Bala, another haumāna of Nā Pua Noʻeau Lānaʻi.
The big news of Hōkūle‘a’s return to Hawai‘i last weekend might overshadow another great success for Polynesian voyaging: On June 4, for the first time in thirty years, the canoe-builders of Taumako, Solomon Islands sailed a traditional tepuke (canoe) to neighboring Santa Cruz Island. You can read more about the Vaka Taumako Project in the current issue of Hana Hou!

I create contemporary and functional woven pieces of the hala leaf from the pūhala (screwpine pandanus tree) that have since died. I incorporate styles that are timeless yet push the boundaries of the customary while continuing to perpetuate traditional practices of weaving items such as purses, mats, and hats – not being limited to what once was where styling is concerned.

In 1975 Cazimero; and his hula brother, Wayne Y. Chang; formed a dancing group, Hālau Nā Kamalei Līlīlehua, that started with six young Hawaiian men. Dedicating his energy to the vanishing tradition of male hula, Hālau Nā Kamalei has inspired hundreds of men to perpetuate the traditional Hawaiian dance form. Hālau Nā Kamalei is one of Hawaiʻi’s most highly respected male hālau, and are also noted as vocalists, releasing their debut CD, “RCHNK” in 2000. They have won critical acclaim and awards at the annual Merrie Monarch Festival Competition, the world’s largest Hawaiian hula competition, choosing to participate every ten years.

Members of Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i have many opportunities to get involved and develop their skills by taking on leadership positions. Any member is welcome to run for a position on the club’s executive board. This allows members to help with the planning of the club’s activities. Also, each year, two freshmen are elected as representatives to serve on the board. They help integrate the communication lines between the upperclassmen and the new students. Members also serve on one or more lū‘au committees. The skills developed through these leadership roles introduce many opportunities for students to get involved in different organizations on campus (i.e. residence life, student government, other clubs and organizations).

Through the years NKW has found that the canoe is the perfect educational platform to engage learners, both local and international, in basic academics, especially math and sciences. These STEM programs are perfectly married to the cultural aspects of voyaging so well that often students don’t even realize that they are performing tasks from simple measurements and conversions of units to complicated physics formulas that determine speed. Program curriculum has been designed to best suit each group and program that visit us.  When our learners see the direct application of these STEM and other academic skills in a cultural setting, it is easy for them to see the relevance to their everyday lives as well.
If you are on your way fro Kona to the volcanoes, this is a stop you should make. It’s a charming place dating back to the 1940s. Be sure to ask them about its history. Food and service was very good. All four of us thought our meals were just right. Not huge portions and very tasty.

The haku mele responds with “Aloha ka uka i ke onaona.” Its effect, however, is anything but sanguine. It brings anguish to the girl’s mother, and it brings “death” of some kind to the young lovers: “‘O ka hopena i ike ia, ua make akula keia kaikamahine me ka ipo ana i koho ai, ma mua o ka puka ana ae a laha keia mele.” “This result is known: the girl and the sweetheart she chose die [make here can mean a literal death, a death of embarrassment, or death of affection] because of the release and dissemination of this mele.” Our story-teller Kīlau Pali says nothing of the mele’s effect on Hōlanikū; the tale ends, instead, with the observation that the language of double entendre (‘ōlelo ‘ano lua) used in the courtship of Helena and Ioane is that of the Hawaiian people of 50 years past (the 1870’s), language that has vanished today (the 1920’s) in the same manner as has the “hula kake.”
