Hau’oli Makahiki Hou! Happy New Year, Happy New Hohoa!

new hohoa

These five hohoa were made in record time!  Imua!

The onset of this new year makes my heart feel glad and appreciative.  I am thankful for my ‘ohana (family).  They continuously help me with the actual work of making my mea kapa.

This new year my kuleana (responsibility) will continue to involve haumana (students) in kapa-making.  We are building a mala garden that will feature these kapa plants: wauke, noni, kukui, olena, ‘uki’uki, ma’o, and ilie’e….

I was awarded the David Boynton Educational Grant.  This is a local grant that was established and named in honor of the late David Boynton.  I am so grateful for these funds. We will be purchasing the garden tools and supplies we need for the Kapa Garden Project!  Mahalos
