Education: I am happy to speak with students about Native Hawaiian Design Theory. Kakau is one piece. There is kapa design, quilt patterns,and pahu design as well. Teaching the Hawaiian youth about their identity by applying the principles of design helps them to carve out a clear picture on modern issues with traditional elements that affect them everyday. This allows them to have a voice and their voice is magnified as they use the elements of their kupuna. One voice who calls together their entire genealogy becomes a multitude of voices.

a fisherman of the deep sea uses a long line.
