Opening celebration event of the “Royal Hawaiian Featherworks: Na Hulu Ali`i” Exhibit

Kua’aina Associates
Aug 29, 12:00PM – 04:00PM

Afforded great respect through the ages, the kahili is a prized cultural item among Native Hawaiian people. Kahili are feathered standards used to show status, lineage, and family ties. There are many sizes and styles of kahili, and this workshop will provide participants an opportunity to create their own kahili pa`a lima (Hawaiian hand held kahili). Instructor Herman Tachera will also lecture on the history of the kahili and its spiritual and cultural importance.

CPIA will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition (PPIE) celebrations scheduled to take place in San Francisco throughout the year, along with the following exhibitions: Oakland Museum’s Pacific Worlds and Royal Hawaiian Featherworks: Na Hulu Ali’i exhibit at the deYoung Museum.
