According to organizer Noelle Kahanu, the market is fashioned after the Indian markets at Santa Fe, New Mexico and the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, both of which have been running for a half-century. "They've got great models," says Kahanu, "but we're doing our best to create something that represents who we are as Hawaiians. A wide variety of quality Native Hawaiian arts will be showcased, displayed, and demonstrated, such as featherwork, wood carving and sculpture, and weaving. In addition, there will be Native Hawaiian performing arts and food booths featuring island favorites.
Artisans and performers who would like to learn more about how they can participate in the market and festival, should contact Kahanu at (808) 848-4190 or by email at
