Wendeanne Ke'aka Stitt

Modern kapa making is a long, arduous, solo endeavor. It requires infinite patience, physical endurance, mental strength and humility. It involves 3 important factors that I love: repetition, intrigue, and tradition. There are a handful of kapa makers in Hawai`i currently involved in the revival of making kapa. I strive to perfect my skill at kapa making and to share my kapa lineage with the next generation.
