Early Hawaiians devoted much of their time to games, amusements and relaxing. Top-spinning was an absorbing activity for children and making Hū (kukui-nut top) was equally engaging.

Mele made her first feather lei at the age of 5. She was taught by her grandmother, Aunty Mary Lou Kekuewa, it was inevitable. Feathers were a constant in Mele’s life as 3 generations lived together in their family home.
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. 🙂
This truly is a Hawaiian art form that could die out…  definitely not one for children (although even children could probably make a pua hulu – feather flower); and not a task to be taken lightly.  My last lei took several months to complete.  Having said that, we need to perpetuate the culture, so if you are interested, and in Honolulu, check this out.

Nānā I ke Kumu is a meaningful olelo no’eau. To different people, it has a different meaning. To me it means to always look where the knowlage is. Or pay attention to your teachings and teachers. Anyone can be a teacher to you. To me, as long as you learn something from a person, the person was a teacher. If you learn something from an experience, that was a teaching. Learn as much wisdom you can and live life smart!

“Nānā I Ke Kumu (Look to the Source), a two-volume work first published in 1979, describes Hawaiian beliefs and customs compiled by the Queen Lili‘uokalani Children’s Center to better understand and meet the needs of the Hawaiian families they served. Much of the books’ material was distilled from the Center’s Hawaiian Culture Study Committee’s weekly meetings. The authors strove to capture the freshness, the intimacy, and the “aliveness” of Hawaiian ideas put into action. Mary Kawena Pukui (1895–1986) is the primary source of information on Hawaiian culture not otherwise documented.

Manuhealiʻi Hawaiʻi White Green Tan Colorway Nā Palapalai (The Ferns) Print Coconut husk color buttons Short sleeve, firm sleeve cut. Size Medium ******** There is something soothing about a stand of palapalai ferns. Perhaps it is the vibrant green, or the lacy softness they add to the landscape. And it doesn’t hurt that the fine hairs on the fronds sparkle in sunlight that filters to the forest floor. Interesting that the early Hawaiians used the fern as a treatment for hehena (translation: insanity) according to the Hawaiian Enthnobotany online database. Palapalai is also valued as a plant sacred to the hula goddess Laka, and softly encircles the head, wrists, and ankles of the dancers of hula kahiko.
Our keiki are the branches of our future. To help them grow, haumana need a strong educational foundation in who they are, where they have come from, and how their actions will impact their future. This ʻōlelo noʻeau speaks to the kuleana of a Kumu; to nurture, grow, and guide our haumana to reach their full potential as learners. I believe that through Hawaiian culture and values based lessons both Kumu and haumana will continue to flourish. 
This is a cute little restaurant that has so much character and the sweetest people. We stopped here to get lunch before hiking to Papakolea Beach (Green Sand Beach). We got the Fish of the Day and Roast Pork lunches and they were delicious. It very filling and pretty cheap for the amount of food we got.we also got a cookie to go because it was National Cookie Day, and it was also delicious. Highly recommend for those in the area and want a quick bite.
Out for my weekly pilgrimage to the Wednesday Downtown Curbside bites lunch,  I perused that weeks trucks and spotted one that I had never seen before.  What was this light blue truck?…… Hawaiian. Ooooh, I love Hawaiian.  Give me a big mound of Kalua Pork and rice and I am one happy camper.  I was totally excited to try it, and led my lunch buddies over to the truck.  2 of us tried the Kalua Pork plates and another tried the lumpia.  The lumpia was really, really oily.  The rice that came with the pork was the sticky gelatinous kind which my friend really liked.  The pork was ok.  It lacked a little saltiness and that smoked flavor that usually comes with being smoked in an imu all day, but it was moist.  The sandwich version comes with BBQ sauce so that one probably had more flavor.  The employees were super nice and my food was ready really quickly, so two pluses for them.

  1. I am using this and Vol 1 as reference as I write a fiction novel which includes reference to old Hawaii traditions. This is one of books recommended by native academics for reliability, as I try to write a piece that might also be enjoyed by Big Island natives as well as euro-American-haoles.
