Is it possible to find instructions to make the string figure Piko o Kahoali'i. I have a friend Ronnie Kahoali'i and would like to create the figure and display in a box for him. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Mahalo nui loa.

Well, it has taken about two years to complete... my Piko o Kaho'ali'i project was finally completed on June 17, 2006!
I have attached two pictures of the project. A close up, and one with Ronnie Kaho'ali'i.. .the recipient of my vision.
The entire project consists of:
1. The string figure made from my hair
2. The lei made by my mother, in red to honor the feather cloak Kaho'ali'i I wore during the Makahiki procession
3. A piece of Hawaiian kapa donated by Aunty Mary Lou and Aunty Paulette (from Honolulu)
4. The shadow box made by my father out of monkeypod
 I want to send my warmest aloha and mahalo for your help in learning how to do Piko o Kaho'ali'i.

Yes, you can share the story and the pictures on your website. I checked with Ronnie as well. He feels very honored to be included. Malama pono.
