Alika-Tejada-WebFor the early Hawaiians, the primary source of dietary protein was always fish and shellfish. Tonight, once again satisfying our curiosity about traditional Hawaiian practices and devices, Alika Tejada shares his knowledge of traditional Hawaiian fishing methods, and the manufacture and use of the implements that made them successful.  Join us to learn how various hooks, cordage, lures, nets, and other items were made from local resources, and used to the economic and spiritual benefit of the Hawaiian people.
