Merrie Monarch Art Market Series – Feather work at Na Lima Mili Hulu Noʻeau

In Kapahulu we learn about Hawaiian feather work at Ne Lima Mili Hulu Noʻeau with Mele Kahalepuna Chun.  For generations this family owns and operates this craft store near Waikiki preparing  for Hawaiian cultural events year round including the 2020 Merrie Monarch Festival.  Along with her students and daughter Leleaʻe Wong Kahalepuna, they create unique, one of a kind creations. Some of  which were designed by her Tutu, Mary Lou Kekuewa, and also by her mother, Paulette Kahalepuna.  Students are encouraged to learn at her store. Much of her wares like the hat band, or humu papa, are available at Merrie Monarch, and also online at  This store is located at 762 Kapahulu Avenue, near Waikiki, Oahu.
