Fred Malulani Beckley Kahea passing on traditional knowledge, 1922.

[Found under: “Nuhou Kuloko”]

In order to teach mat weaving [ulana moena], feather lei making [haku lei hulu], net tying [ka upena], and other Hawaiian skills, Fred Malulani Beckley Kahea initiated himself a class in the armory, beginning at seven o’clock this Thursday night.

[I was reminded of this article by the recent post by Nanea Armstrong-Wassel about Fred Malulani Beckley Kahea and traditional featherworkers.

F. M. B. Kahea not only taught his class at the armory, but he also was the sharing his knowledge in the construction of kahili when they were made for Governor Farrington in 1928.]
