Kapa Kuiki (Hawaiian Quilting) Demonstration

Hawaiians learned the basic method of kuiki (quilting) after the missionaries arrived in the early 1800s. As the art evolved, so did the patterns which were inspired by birds, plants and shadows on the ground. Join Cyndy Martinez as she shares her expertise in the beautiful art known as kapa kuiki, Hawaiian quilting. 

Part of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park’s ongoing ‘Ike Hana Noʻeau (Experience the Skillful Work) Hawaiian cultural programs, and co-sponsored by the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.
