Aloha mai kākou e nā hoamakamaka e heluhelu mai nei i kaʻu “blog”. Hoihoi kēia! I wanted to address some questions that I have been asked this past week. First, how much should you as a parent or ʻohana pick? Pick enough foliage for only one (1) neck lei. This is just to get a “taste” of making a hake lei and for Kumu Crabbe to share one of his passions with all of the Papa ʻEhā ʻohana. How much is enough for one neck lei, you ask??? One – two KTA plastic bags or one soda box filled with an assorted array of plant material. Another question is “Do I have to pick pūkiawe, liko lehua and ʻaʻaliʻi. ʻAʻole! No!!! You may pick and use whatever you wish to make the lei for your keiki. It will only be a neck lei. You may choose to use koa, uki grass, moa or pua lehua (either yellow or red) or any other Hawaiian plant material that is available. Another question that was asked was “Do we have to make a ʻfull setʻ ? No lei poʻo or kūpeʻe for the hands and feet. Just a neck lei. Kumu will also provide the raffia and the palapalai if I am able to get out to Kalopa to go and pick next weekend. Any other nīnau, just let me know, or call me at 982-0252. Iʻll be sure to get back to you.
Me ke aloha nui,

Here are some of the flower material that can be picked up on Saddle Road or in the Volcano area that will be used for the fourth grade lei-making session on Monday, April 29th at 5:30 pm at the Kekūananoʻa Pod for the fourth grade parents.

This mele speaks of the travels of Pauahi and Charles Reed Bishop to the United States and Europe in the years of 1875-1876. The Bishops also traveled to Canada, Scotland, England and Rome. There were many “new” sights to see and many places to visit. It also seemed to have been an educational journey for them as their were many museums and places of interest that they were able to take in on their trip.

Maluhia ʻo Keaʻau is a special song written for KS Hawaiʻi Campus which describes the land in all of itʻs beauty. It honors and remembers Lunalilo and Pauahi as benevolent aliʻi who gave generously to their people. Peaceful is Keaʻau in the calm and stillness of love.
