Different speakers from the community speak about Mauna O Wakea from a cultural perspective

Presentation Topic - Birds of a Feather

Hawaiian artists and artisans developed an extensive body of featherworked items for apparel and ceremonial display. From skirts to statuary, helmets to cloaks, chiefly ceremonial items were intricately feathered. The birds that provided these feathers were captured and managed in a variety of ways that assured a continuous supply. The kia manu, the bird catcher not only harvested the birds, but watched over the health of the bird populations.
