Aloha Hui and Friends; Big Mahalo to all those who assisted with our Fall Laulau and Poke Fundraiser and to all those who loyally support the Hui by purchasing the laulau and poke. We look forward to next Spring 2014 for our next Laulau and Poke Fundraiser. Again, Mahalo Nui from Hui Paoakalani!!
Aloha Hui and Friends: On Saturday, 5 October 2013, we will have a final paddle for the 2013 Season and will be taking Na Wa'a out of the water to cleanup and store them for the winter season. We appreciate any assistance we can get in pulling the outrigger canoes out of the water. Mahalo to all that have participated during the past 6 months in our activities at the lake and our other activities and projects with the outrigger canoes, including the latest addition to our Ohana, Kumu Paoa. For those of you who have not met Kumu Paoa, he is our new 4 man canoe that was handcrafted by Tom Parker. Kumu Paoa is on display at the Pacific Heritage Academy located in Rose Park, Salt Lake City, Utah.
