Drydock is a essential part of the holistic nature of canoe culture. During drydock, learners are exposed to the importance of vessel maintenance. Through drydock programs NKW emphasizes the Hawaiian value of Mālama, to take care of. Most drydock programs center around the mālama (maintenance) of Makaliʻi, our main voyaging vessel. Participants have the opportunity to learn lashing, vessel engineering, and other tasks related to maintaining the sea-going integrity of Makaliʻi. Learners become very familiar with canoe parts and how each part is related to the other parts, a direct reflection of our own community’s make-up.

I had no idea where to get a “special” feather lei, let alone “a feather lei a gift’??? There is protocal when it comes to gifts to Kahunanui’s and I didn’t know where to begin. So, I contact my fellow yelper Marko M. who, without missing a beat, fires off an email to me explaining 1) where I should go, 2) what I should get, 3) who I should speak to, etc.  Taking his advice….

I believe that our kūpuna were visionary when using resources available for the preparation of materials, as well as looking at contemporary and popular styling of the time. While important to be rooted in tradition, I also feel that the practices have become complacent for the sake of maintaining traditions. To draw a greater interest in the young, the practice must evolve in order for the craft to survive.
Today is the release of Shep Gordon’s new autobiography, “They Call Me Supermensch: A Backstage Pass to the Amazing Worlds of Film, Food and Rock ‘n’ Roll.” For those who didn’t read our profile of the Maui resident (“The Good Shepherd,” April/May 2015 issue; link below), Gordon is the man behind rocks stars like Jimi Hendrix and Alice Cooper; he invented the idea of the celebrity chef with Emeril Lagasse; and he was the subject of Mike Meyers’ recent documentary, “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.” His new book tracing his long, strange trip through the heart of show biz is a warm and hilarious mix of anecdotes and outrageous stories. Congratulations Shep!
