Ka Papa Loa are our board and stone making workshops, designed to enable more families and individuals to create the tools for making ‘ai pono from kalo and other traditional foods.

Hui Aloha ‘Aina Momona has held workshops at numerous locations, including Makua Valley, Papa Hana Kuaola and our dedicated site in Kahalu‘u. We provide cured wooden slabs that have been soaked in He‘eia fish pond, power tools and stones, and hands-on instruction for those without previous board or stone carving experience.

Ka Papa Loa is an opportunity to connect more deeply with the cycle of food in Hawai‘i, and the most effective way to bring the powerful act of making food for your family into your own home.
