      Living Culture Engagement: Ukeke, Hawaii’s Indigenous Stringed Instrument with Lance Genson Mahi La Pierre

      Developed generations before the ukulele, the ukeke, or Hawaiian musical bow, is Hawaii's only indigenous stringed instrument. Learn about this not widely known yet once-treasured musical instrument primarily used for hooipoipo (courtship and romance) and to accompany hula, mele, and oli. Few people today have seen, heard of, or know how to make and play this instrument. Attend this program to see, touch, and play this unique Hawaiian stringed instrument. This program is free with paid Museum admission. The Bishop Museum Living Culture series and workshops are supported by Hawaii Tourism through the Kukulu Ola Program.
