The art of making clothing and material goods from the bark of trees has long been practiced around the world. Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders used plants such as wauke (paper mulberry) to make kapa (barkcloth). In this presentation, you’ll learn the history—and future—of kapa in Hawaiʻi with Dalani Tanahy of Kapa Hawaii, and spend some time using traditional Hawaiian tools and methods to create a piece of kapa yourself.

The Bishop Museum Living Culture presentations are supported by Hawai‘i Tourism through the Kūkulu Ola Program.
