Vad du kommer att göra
We meet at Makaleha mountain and hike to gather some water from the fresh water spring. We hike another 10minutes to harvest bamboo. I have been making bambooflutes for 20 years so I know exactly what we can use (age, size, color). Every person can pick their own to make an instrument. I explain what is important to know about cutting bamboo. I also explain all the native plants around us - which you can eat or use for healing. I do “La’au Lapaau” which is Hawaiian medicine. I survived 2 years out in the jungle with that knowledge - eating off the land. The hiking part is over and we drive back tomy house, where everybody is making their own noseflute or other instrument. They drill and burn the holes and I help them to find sound. For a snack we serve fresh Kalo (Taro), Sweet Potatoes (Ualaa), Avocados or coconut candy. Opening coconuts, Drumming and weaving optional, if we have some time left and if the guests are interested in doing that.
I am born and raised on that beautiful Island of Kauai. I spend two years in the woods all by myself. Since that I want to show people who Kauai is and what she's able too. She helped me to understand what life is and what's important. I love nature and the polynesian culture and I think every single person that is visiting the islamd should experience what Kauai gives me. I had a non profit organisation (the children of the land) where I offered classes of drumming, firedancing, weaving, cooking, planting etc. I have been taking people out to the woods for years and I love it.

Upp till 10 gäster som är 4 år eller äldre kan delta. Föräldrar kan också ta med barn under 2 år. It’s a hike, so if you are not able to walk, I would change the tour and would directly go to my house to make noseflutes And instruments!
It's a short hike on a muddy trail. We also have to cross a river. The hike is not longer than 30min all in all and also kids can do it.
