HAWAIIAN ARTS AND CRAFTS AT KA WA‘A, A LU‘AU AT AULANI, A DISNEY RESORT & SPA

on July 13, 2017

When you and your family arrive to the KA WA‘A lu‘au at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, you’ll be greeted by our hosts and hostesses with a special lei. You can mingle around the resort’s Halawai Lawn as live music and performers set the tone for the evening. During this time, you’ll be also observe and participate in various traditional arts and crafts, including:

Na Pua U‘i (The Pretty Flowers): You’ll learn the traditional art of stringing lei (or flower garlands) together, creating your very own to adorn your neck or wrist. Or, you can present the lei as a special token of aloha to a loved one.

Pa‘i ‘Ai (Pounded Taro): After observing the traditional mashing of cooked taro into a thick paste called pa‘i ‘ai, you can join in and experience the effort it takes to make poi the traditional way.

Kapala (Printing): Intricately carved bamboo stamps called ‘ohe kapala were traditionally used to decorate and embellish fine kapa (bark cloth). You can create their own keepsake on a card using stamps inspired by traditional patterns of nature.

Kakau (Tattooing): Pick a kakau design and have a local artisan draw by hand on your arms, legs or even face! You’ll experience a contemporary take on the painstaking age-old practice of a traditional body art.

KA WA‘A lu‘au is offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa.
