    Bowl of Light

    $ 40
    The birth of a child, anywhere in the world, is a special thing. Each child brings a bright spot of light which, if nurtured and developed, can become a burning torch of wisdom and passion. To symbolize this, on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai, children are given a wooden calabash containing kukui nut oil and a wick. It is their bowl of light.

    Pohakulani

    $ 50$ 1,500
    This is the Alaka'i (dance leader) of Halau o Kekuhi.  She has devoted her life to the study of hula, though right now she is taking a break to find out how the rest of the world lives.  She is an elegant, lovely girl with a quiet, sweet spirit and a determined edge.  In this hula she uses her pa’u skirt in a movement over her shoulders reminding me of the outstretched wings of a bird.  She looked as if she could almost fly off the stage.

    Fern Lei

    Many places in the world have sand and sun, but nowhere else will you find the Hawaiian culture. In this piece I have done my best to accurately record several dancers of Halau O Kekuhi who earn the respect of all Hawaii for preserving this unique and beautiful part of their heritage.

    Ka Hula

    $ 50$ 1,500
    If your image of the hula is that of graceful hips and cellophane skirts, you are missing what is the best of Hawaii.  To me it is the Kane, the men of the Hula that make it amazing.  Their power and strength, speed and perfection that keep people coming back, year after year, to the Merrie Monarch.

    The Guardian

    $ 40
    In 1991, the 200th anniversary of its construction was celebrated by the gathering of the first Na Koa or Hawaiian Regiment, seen in Hawaii in almost the last two centuries.  Dressed in malos, dog tooth and boar tusk arm and leg guards and armed with 18 foot spears or lava stone clubs – they are the guardians of the past, keepers of an almost forgotten art of war.
