Another wonderful review from... Librarything

“An immensely informative collection of pictures, stories, and history of the Ki'i - turned Tiki - of the Hawaiian Islands and the culture it subsequently sparked. Very well organized and wonderfully attractive. A welcome addition to an art or history book collection.”

“Nice book. Full of tiki pictures with an explanation of each photo. Recommended for anyone traveling to the islands. This book will add to your experience.”

I agree.

Aloha,

Here's another outtake from the files! If you are coming to Hukilau, I think you'll enjoy my presentation. It's shaping up quite nicely!

Aloha,

This Outtake is of magician John Hirokawa and his Moai escape trick. Magic of Polynesia is a good show! I didn't use it in Waikiki Tiki because it didn't come out very well. Instead, I used the Roberts Hawaii brochure...

Aloha!



Polynesian Cultural Center, by one of the meeting rooms...

If you have not got your copy of Waikiki Tiki yet, I urge you to do so...

Amazon link. I'd be happy to sign it for you at The Hukilau after my really cool seminar - "A Celebration of the Tiki Age in Hawaii."

Aloha,



This outtake is also from Laie. I wrote in my notes that they are benches in the courtyard of the PPC, rolled out and used for the mini-show.
