Kona, Oʻahu Board & Stone Workshops

Aloha mai kākou,

The Kamehameha Schools Kona, Oʻahu region, in collaboration with Hawaiian culture-based community education program Keiki O Ka ʻĀina, is excited to be hosting the first-ever Board & Stone Class at Hālau ‘Īnana.

The family-based cultural experience teaches the Hawaiian tradition of hand-carving a papa kuʻi ʻai (poi board) and a pōhaku kuʻi ʻai (stone poi pounder) with natural materials gathered from the land. The class is taught by Kumu Earl Kawa‘a, a Hawaiian resource specialist with KS and revered cultural practitioner from Molokaʻi who teaches time-proven methodologies of sustainability that have served Hawaiians for generations.
