BWET: Mahalo nui loa to  East High School teacher, Voyaging students, and kumu from KSBE for an amazing morning of learning about kalo. Homegrown on campus, students huki (pulled), cleaned, steamed and ku’i’ai (to pound food) sweet kalo. Kumu from KSBE brought papa ku’i’ai (Poi pounding boards) and pohaku (stones) to show students the molokai style of pounding poi, explained that each island does it a little differently. Everyone in the class had a turn including East High School teacher, Mr. Ikeda and I...a first for me...incredible feeling that this is what our ancestors did to feed their communities...very thankful to East High School teacher and her students for giving me this extraordinary experience…
