In this three-hour workshop you will fashion and string your very own ʻūkēkē, or musical bow, Hawaiʻi’s only indigenous stringed instrument. Learn to strum and play a traditional song called “Mele ʻŪkēkē,” passed down from Hawaiian scholar and kumu hula Mary Kawena Pukui to master chanter James Kaʻupena Wong Jr. and then to Mahi. Participate in this workshop to help be a part of the revival of the ʻūkēkē’s use in Hawaiian culture today.

Museum admission is included with workshop registration.

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