Got my ku'i on today with @alohaainapoico. Sorry if you guys lagged on getting your poi and kulolo cause WE SOLD OUT YESTERDAY! But mahalo to everyone for coming to the booth and checking us out. We still get merch and pictures of me available though 😂. #poipoundahs#alohaainapoicompany#pifasandiego
A few reasons PIFA was extra awesome this year:
☑️ The cultural villages were on POINT. Everyone did a beautiful job sharing knowledge and providing demonstrations. 👌🏽
☑️ Performing with @varuatahitiegroup! PIFA has been an important fixture in connecting with my heritage over the last 11 years. It was an honor to perform and give back in this way. 💃🏽
☑️ I cut my first Tivaevae as our Cook Islands demonstration! Totally nerve inducing (maybe more than performing), but also rewarding. Now I have a looooot of stitching to do. 😂
"Lahi-hu, these sails bare the hieroglyphics of our ancestors, representing each of the Mariana islands; Luta, Tinian, Sai'pan and Guahan. Chuli esti na la'yak. Go forth, be brave and seek new land to spread our culture across the world for generations to come. The future of the Chamorro culture rests in your hands."
