kapa kulture

This blog is dedicated to Hawaiian kapa and matters related to Hawai'i nei…kuku kapa e!

Kapa Art Education Project

I have been busy making kapa over the past couple of weeks.  Tending the māla wauke, the garden with wauke (paper mulberry plants); stripping, soaking, pounding poho (bundles of mo’omo’o, prepared wauke); carving some of my tools; collecting dye plants; etc…

This work has been done pretty much by myself at home unless I go somewhere on location…

I have been thinking a lot about going out into the public with the project.  I will be working with my daughter next week and possibly with a couple other teen girls, making kapa during their Spring Break.  We will be working outdoors in a public venue.  This could be the start of what I feel will bring recognition to Hawaiians and an opportunity to talk about whatever issues that relate… hope to be a symbol of sovereignty…kanaka unite!
