- Uncle Wes takes us on a journey that has lasted over 40 years learning the ancient Hawaiian art of kapa making. This journey started here in Hawaii and took him all around the Pacific where he learned from the many practitioners of the art. We thoroughly enjoyed hearing stories about the various plants, varieties, and styles of kapa making across The Pacific. Uncle Wes sought out knowledge from many of these people who perpetuated this art and style of clothing that was near extinction in the 1970s. Lucky for us, we still have this knowledge to pass on to our keiki today. Joining us on this episode is guest host and fellow Native Hawaiian artist and graphic designer DJ Kekuaokalani.
- Music – Tiare Tahiti by Clint Mariteragi from the 2009 album Tamari’i No Tahiti.
