An ingenious, organic concoction of
wood, sap, fiber and leaves…
Perfected by centuries of life and
death interaction with an unforgiving
sea.  The Hawaiian Canoe stands as
supreme testimony to the Hawaiians'
resourcefulness and spirit.

Man in harmony with his natural
Kialoa…”a very small
canoe in which only one or two men
can sail...a very handsome canoe”.
Andrews (1865)
