Cool Site: Na Kupuna
Na Kupuna means the elders or the wise ones, referring to those who have a lot of experience and wisdom to share with the younger ones in the community to help them learn and grow. The many ancient arts as well as some modern adaptations that are unique to Hawaii are listed with descriptions. Several have longer references linked from the home page, including Ka Hula (hula dance and culture); Na Hulu (featherwork); Kapa (cloth made from bark); Kapa Kuiki (Hawaiian quilts); Lapa Lapa'au (healing arts); Ka 'Olelo (language); and Na Oli (chants).
