Episode 1: Ulana Lau Hala, Lolay Muraki

Aunty Lolay visits Drew and Lei to tell us about the practice of ulana lau hala (lau hala weaving) in this very first episode of season II.

Learn more about Aunty Lolay – Gloria-Ann Pualani Muraki – on the Mea Kipa page, along with all the other Ka Leo o ka Uluau guests.

The second season of the podcast consists of 12 episodes beginning in January 2022 with a shift in focus from moʻolelo and kaʻao (stories) on Hawaiʻi Island to Hawaiian cultural practices that inform us how to meaningfully and sustainably interact with the place we live based on those traditional knowledge systems.

Season II episodes will be released throughout the year on the Hilo moon phase of every malama (lunar month) to raise awareness of this ancient yet relevant practice of keeping time and will feature guests who are knowledgeable in various Hawaiian cultural practices. This segment was released on the Hilo moon phase of Kāʻelo (January 2).

Look for our next episode to be released on Hilo moon phase of Kaulua (February 1).

Inoa Matters – Moku of Hāmākua

Listen to Inoa Matters for Hāmākua to learn more about place and street names – how to pronounce them and some background information for each. It can be tricky to pronounce names because not all public signage includes the diacritical marks like the ʻokina (glottal stop) and kahakō (macron or line over a vowel).

Ka Leo o ka Uluau’s producer and sound engineer, Bruce Torres Fischer, created these quick audiograms because names are important. Pronunciation of names is essential in conveying the manaʻo or meaning behind these places we navigate day-to-day. It’s also a way to celebrate the rich history and culture of places while we accustom our mouths to ‘ōlelo Hawaiʻi, the Hawaiian language.
