Alika Sing has been "making net" for 45 years; in this presentation he will demonstrate the elements of upena lawaia (fishing net) tying and spacing, and the use of the tools in upena tying. The realm of the fisherman extends beyond the making of nets to the understanding of fishing laws today and how they are based on the historical konohiki fishing rights. Learn the names of the ocean realms where certain fish live and be awed by the ancient knowledge Hawaiians have perpetually passed on about the ocean and how to care for the aina (land).

The Bishop Museum Living Culture presentations are supported by Hawai'i Tourism through the Kukulu Ola Program.
