The art of making clothing and material goods from the bark of trees has been practiced around the world. Hawaii and the Pacific used the plants such as wauke (paper mulberry) to make kapa (bark cloth). Learn the history and future of kapa in Hawaii with Dalani Tanahy of Kapa Hawaii, and spend some time using traditional Hawaiian tools and methods to create a piece of kapa yourself. The Bishop Museum Living Culture presentations are supported by Hawaii Tourism through the Kukulu Ola Program.
