      Living Culture Workshop: Ukeke, Hoola Hou--Reviving Hawaii’s Stringed Instrument

      In this three-hour workshop you will fashion and string your very own ukeke, or musical bow, Hawaii's only indigenous stringed instrument. Learn to strum and play a traditional song called "Mele Ukeke," passed down from Hawaiian scholar and kumu hula Mary Kawena Pukui to master chanter James Kaupena Wong Jr. and then to Mahi. Participate in this workshop to help be a part of the revival of the ukeke's use in Hawaiian culture today. Registration: $25 per person Bishop Museum Members receive 10% off registration. Space is limited. Museum admission is included with workshop registration. The Bishop Museum Living Culture series and workshops are supported by Hawaii Tourism through the Kukulu Ola Program.
