Koʻi (Stone Adze) Demonstration

Used in everyday life, the koʻi was the most important tool for kānaka (native people of Hawaiʻi). Koʻi are used to carve canoes from trees, hollow out bowls, notch pots for homes and for carving kiʻi (statues). Stone workers were skilled crafters and highly valued in their community. Join Tom Pico as he shares his knowledge of this nearly forgotten craft.

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.
