After every workshop, the mana from our eager participants generates a very tangible momentum in the hale building process. In the two days following the January workshop, our haumana finished lashing the kauhuhu and notched the remaining 7 pou on the mauka side. They also shaped and placed the lohelau on both sides, and the first of 14 o’a. We plan to have all the o’a in place by the end of the week and begin lashing them. By the March 11th workshop, the kaupaku should be ready for the loulu thatching. Mahalo to all our volunteers for their kokua, energy and enthusiasm!
