Mākeke Kapolei Feature of the Month - April26 - Oahu

Thanks to the grant, a special feature at Mākeke Kapolei this week (April 26) will help shoppers get up close to various types of native Hawaiian limu (seaweed) and discuss traditional (and some not so traditional) uses. Uncle Henry Chang Wo and Wally Ito will teach how to identify native limu and invasive algae, as well as explain why we are losing our native limu resources and how we can all help. You’ll even get to sample a delicious limu salad!  This activity will be free of charge and repeated throughout the afternoon from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Please join us!

We would also like to thank the Queen Liliʻuokalani Children’s Center for a grant to educate native Hawaiian youth about their culture through Mākeke Kapolei.

Mana Lomi® Level 1 and Lomi'ili'ili - March 19-21 and 23-25, 2012 - Lihue, Kauai

Mana Lomi® Level 1 and Lomi'ili'ili 
March 19-21 and 23-25, 2012

Mana Lomi® 1: Clinical Techniques
March 19-21, 2012      Tuition: $485
Carol Hart, MAT6285

Mana Lomi® is based on Hawaiian concepts of       working with the body, mind and spirit.  It is hands-on   healing that is deep and powerful, yet gentle, giving immediate and long-term results.  Lomilomi symbolically means “to communicate energetically deep within the bones of the individual thus the soul of the person”.
    This segment will include topics such as clinical procedures of Mana Lomi®, simple meditation, ho'oponopono (alignment of living), the history and timeline of Mana Lomi®, Hawaiian healing chants, and Hale Pulo'ulo'u (Hawaiian House of Purification) on the final day (time and weather permitting).  Mana Lomi® 1 is suggested for all upper level Mana Lomi® techniques including Level 2 (Advanced Specific Conditions), Lomi'ili'ili (Hawaiian Hot Stone Therapy), and Level 3 (Joint Mobilization, taught exclusively by Kumu Maka'ala Yates, D.C.).
    This workshop will take place from March 19- 21, 2012 at the Aloha Lomi Massage Academy for three full days.  Most materials are provided.  To save a position in class, send $100 non-refundable deposit by March 1st.  Upon completion, all students are qualified for 27 units of continuing education under Category A with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).

Lomi’ili’ili (Hawaiian Hot Stone Therapy) 
March 23-25, 2012         Tuition: $535
Dr. Maka'ala Yates, D.C. and Carol Hart, MAT6285

    Lomi‘ili’ili, which literally means “flat stones in motion,” have been used in Hawaii for hundreds of years to treat the many levels of healing necessary to help restore balance in the mind-body-soul. Traditionally, stones were used as an extension of the hands to help the practitioner to better access hard to reach physical restrictions.
    This intensive training invites you to experience the traditional and ancient Hawaiian art form of hot stone therapy that is specific to the individual’s needs. Each student will learn how to collect stones using proper protocols, how to heat the stones and control the temperature, and how to clean the stones.
    You will learn the three basic (formats) using hot stones, including "transitions." This training is more than just laying of stones onto the patient; it is specific to the individual’s needs as it focuses on problem solving! The more Mana Lomi® skills you have the more uses for the stones you will have. 
    This workshop will take place from March 23-25, 2012 at the Aloha Lomi Massage Academy (MAE2666) for three full days.  Most materials are provided.  To save a position in class, send $100 non-refundable deposit by March 1; full tuition must be paid two weeks in advance.  Upon completion, all students are qualified for 27 units of continuing education under Category A with the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB).  For more information, call 808-245-LOMI (5664), email and visit the website at  Cash, checks and credit cards are welcome.

   Dr. Maka’ala Yates D.C. developed Mana Lomi after years of studying (since the age of 6) Hawaiian healing concepts with his Hawaiian teachers. For the benefit of the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, Mana Lomi literally translates as “Hawaiian Spiritual Massage.” However, according to the voices of Na Kupuna (Hawaiian Elders – Wisdom Keepers) Mana Lomi could be translated as the ”Life-force of Lomi.” Lomi or Lomilomi describes a concept that involves the movement of energy. 

Carol Hart, MAT 6285, is a certified Lomi Instructor and has studied with Dr. Maka’ala Yates, a Kanaka
Maoli, since 2002.  She has over 18 years of healing experience on Kaua’i, and has been teaching 
Mana Lomi® 1 workshops for three years.  She founded Hart-Felt Massage & Day Spa , the first massage
establishment and spa on West Kauai, and is founder and instructor for the Aloha Lomi Massage Academy.

Ingredients Hawaii World Premiere - February 4th, 2012 - Oahu

Ingredients Hawaii World Premiere
Director’s Notes:
The decision to make a Hawaii version of Ingredients came after a pretty good twist of the arm by Ed Kenney and Gary Maunakea Forth. It also began with the help of our initial sponsors, Whole Foods, and the Hawaii Department of Agriculture; and subsequently the support of Kamehameha Schools and the Hawaii Council for the Humanities.

A documentary film is not necessarily planned, but discovered. My intention was to let the people who work in the new food system tell their story and my part of it would be to give them a voice in the noisy media marketplace. But it wasn’t until I stood thigh deep in mud at Mahuahua Ai o Hoi on a community workday that I knew what the film was all about. Being a resident of Hawaii means being connected to land and all the people we share Hawaii with, especially the Native Hawaiian community whose ancestors invented complex and extensive food producing systems that worked in concert with the environment.

An enhanced local food community in Hawaii has many tangible results – improved community relations, environment preservation, healthier food on the table – but it also has the possibility to serve as a model of culturally-based food production that we can share with the world.
Enjoy the film!

The importance of limu (edible algae) in Hawaiian culture, historical and present-day, has been well-documented throughout history and flourishes in local dishes and cuisine.  From freshwater and saltwater varieties, as well as, limu harvested from the loko i‘a (fishpond), it serves as a popular seasoning and vital source of minerals.
