Huraiti Mana hosted a Stay At Home lei-making workshop after a month of closures that continue through the COVID-19 pandemic. To connect together and celebrate community, while also promoting safety for all our huraiti, we hosted an online lei workshop with supplies found in-home! Traditionally made using lā'ī or ti-leaf, we created haku lei po'o (woven with three-ply braid, worn around the head) with paper bags & trash bags! Though we didn't have the ease of in-person teaching to learn this new skill, many of the huraiti completed their first-ever haku lei! We shared in many mo'olelo of lei-making, the stories behind the traditions, and shared in oli (chants). E ho'omaika'i, congratulations to everyone who joined and challenged themselves creatively & artistically during this time. A hui hou! Until we meet again!
