MOKIF Report 2 from Miyazaki!!!

Aloha from Miyazaki!
Part of the fun about being in Miyazaki is enjoying the abundance of nature here. Sig Zane did a workshop about making haku (weaving style) lei. And we went out to an area outside the city called Darumizu, as Sig & the students got to see how local vegetation can be utilized for their lei making. We were blessed with a fine day, and as Sig did his pule (prayer) to ask for permission to to collect the plants, a beautiful black butterfly gracefully fluttered through our path. Not only that, A very auspicious sign!


As Sig was explaining about how to make an auana (modern) lei, a huge pinao (dragonfly) landed on his head! Another very auspicious moment during that workshop.


Back at Miyazaki Kanko Hotel, Sig made a kuahu (hula altar) so that the students can make their kahiko (traditional) lei, as the presence of a kuahu makes it possible for them to be in tune with the gods.


In the evening, we attended a wonderful welcoming party hosted by our friends in Miyazaki. There, Sig presented his one and only artwork of Kalo (or Taro, a Hawaiian potato) to our friends, to symbolize our friendship, as kalo represents "family" in Hawaiian culture.


Here is Moku O Keawe International Festival in Miyazaki's Producer, Kumu Hula Nani Lim Yap & Sig!
Sig is wearing the special Moku O Keawe T-shirt that he designed for this year's Miyazaki Festival.
It has the 'olelo in Hawaiian from his mother-in-law, Edith Kanaka'ole, which means "Unity in thought echoes through the sound of traditional dances."
With that deep saying, a hui hou and I will get more reports from Miyazaki!

The root of your writing while sounding reasonable in the beginning,
did not sit well with me personally after some time.
Someplace throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a short while.
I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic
and one would do well to fill in those gaps.
When you can accomplish that, I would certainly be fascinated.
