Ti-Leaf Lei Making: Believed to possess healing powers and protect its wearer against evil, the sacred ti leaf was once reserved only for Hawaiian royalty. Today, the Hawaiian ti leaf lei is worn open-ended, by males on their graduation, prom or wedding day When dried, the ti leaf is kept as a memorable souvenir.

Eugene Onio Punzal is a Cultural Weaving Practitioner here at the Kaua`i Museum. Having been an instructor of Coconut Basketweaving for close to 30 years, he has finally created workshops that he will be conducting at monthly sessions at the Kaua`i Museum.

As part of a Cultural Outreach Program of the Kaua`i Museum, Uncle Onio does free 45-minute demonstrations to any schools here on the island. Please contact us for more information about these free demonstrations, at (808) 245-6931.
