If you haven’t visited us in awhile, you may have noticed some new changes.

A few new buttons.
Specials: We hope to keep the specials filled with unique items at great prices. We just recently translated our website into Japanese for our customers in Japan. I’m quite nervous about communicating though, since I only have two years of High School Japanese under my belt (I don’t think I paid attention very well (sorry Mrs. Hirai) and I won’t say how many years ago that was!). We’ll see…..
Blog: I love to read blogs so I thought I would give it a try. Let you know what is happening here at Na Kani O Hula and here on Maui.

A few new items.
Hula Supplies: We used to avoid making ‘ulili since it was so darned time consuming. But we bit the bullet and figured out a way to make them without giving us major blisters! We also have available Koa papa hehi and kala’au.
Craft Supplies: We have some really nice lauhala strippers (box and handheld) and tapa beaters. Check it out.

This coming weekend is the Hula O Na Keiki, solo keiki hula competition, at the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel. We will be participating in the craft show Friday and Saturday (9am to 4pm) and also doing ipu/’uli’uli workshops. We do this every year (since I believe 1994) and have such a great time. I’ll try to take some pictures for you.

Today’s ‘Olelo No’eau:
He lei poina ‘ole ke keiki. A lei never forgotten is the beloved child.
