Close to thirty years ago, the Waiʻanae ʻohana at the ʻOpelu Project put together the first Manual on Doing things Hawaiian Style. Everything old is k(new) and the time to remember again is now. Luckily, some people never forgot.
From Then to Now: A Manual for Doing Things Hawaiian Style is a great resource to learn how to put Hawaiian plants such as the kalo, kī, niu, pū hala, ʻuala, and ʻulu, back in the ground, and what to do with what grows! Through talk story, ʻōlelo noʻeau, and instruction, you'll also learn about fish, fishermen and fishing. Insights on making an imu, cutting and cleaning fish, building your own dry box, and more is included in this easy to read manual. Celebrating its fortieth year, Kaʻala Farm has been teaching our children and communities about living Hawaiian style. Through their continued generosity, they've made A Manual on Doing Things Hawaiian Style available to all of us, so we can learn, live, and thrive Hawaiian style too.
