Students from the Farrington High School Hawaiian Studies Program descended on the hale pili under construction in the Bishop Museum’s Hawaiian Hall on May 20. Under the guidance of kumu Pomaika’i Kaniaupio-Crozier, some of the students helped with evenly spreading the pohaku foundation while others worked at fastening wall supports upon which the pili will be fastened. Reconstruction of the ancient hale pili is expected to be finished by the end of June. Hawaiian Hall is expected to reopen to the public in 2009, after years of renovations.
