ʻOhe Ka pala: The Art of Hawaiian Stamping
Mondays, 4 - 5PM
ʻOhe Ka Pala is the traditional Hawaiian art of stamping. These printing techniques were used on tapa (mulberry paper) by ancient Hawaiians. Bamboo carved motif designs and symbols are lined with paint and imprinted on luggage tags and/or book markers. Participants will be able to craft their own keepsakes! The history of Hawaiian stamping and the symbolic meaning behind each pattern are shared with the participants. Other options available at nominal fee.
Ka Lei Hula 'The Adorned Dance'
Fridays, 4 - 5PM
Ka Lei Hula is a traditional Hawaiian dance program that focuses on the philosophical approach of human interactions. The program begins with an oli (a Hawaiian chant of prayer and welcoming). This is followed by stretching and breathing exercises, learning five basic hula steps along with its history, and a Hawaiian song while implementing it with dance.
