Traditions taught by Fred Malulani Beckley Kahea, 1922.

[Found under: Nuhou Kuloko”]

To teach mat weaving [ulana moena], feather lei making [haku leihulu], sewing net [ka upena], and some other Hawaiian skills, Fred Malulani Beckley Kahea opened up a class taught by him, in the armory [halekoa], starting at seven o’clock this Thursday night.

  1. Reblogged this on nupepa and commented:

    Hawaiian words often do not equal English words. For instance, just because we say “sew” net, and “sew” clothes in English, that does not mean Hawaiians used the same word for both. Sew clothes is “humuhumu,” but to sew a net is “kā.” Let’s not make Hawaiian the same as English.
