These are so slick, real smooth carving. That whale looks life-size. And the 'Tu' ones are GREAT. Do these pros carve Tiki's year round? For who?

Buzzy - you should jump over there and give those guys a hand. (Et Tu, Buzzy?)

And - what kind of giant logs are those??? Anybody know?

It sounds as though you enjoyed the Festival of Canoes 2007. Your pictures were great.
I was fortunate be involved this year, working behind the scenes and with the carvers. What an experience! I was also able to attended the “Two on Tattoo” workshop done by Tricia Allen.
Did you get a chance to attend any workshops? Did you attended the Parade/Launch Ceremony? I got to pull the Micronesian Canoe in the parade and had a little ride after the launch....defiantly awesome!

Planning for Festival of Canoes 2008 is already full swing. Being that it is the 10th year of the Master Carvers coming to Maui, we have some exciting plans.

If you want to keep posted or get involved with the Festival for 2008 check out the website

Aloha,
Audra

International Festival of Canoes: Part 1

"" Every year Maui showcases the tradition of canoe building at its International Festival of Canoes.

We take you there and visit with a respected elder from New Zealand who makes the trip every year.

The chainsaws are buzzing with life, a notably different sound from canoe building in the past. But these men from around the Pacific, in New Zealand, Samoa, Micronesia and Hawaii, are working to complete a new canoe in just two weeks.

Of the many crews and master carvers who come to the festival, only Aotearoa's Hekenukumai Busby, has made the trip for 10 years straight.

His reason for coming is the gratitude he feels for Nainoa Thompson and the Hawaiians who helped revitalize celestial navigation in Aotearoa. ""

International Festival of Canoes: Part 2

"" Each year Maui's International Festival of Canoes features a different carving crew from outside Polynesia. This year, we introduce you to the team from the island of Yap in Micronesia. Chief Bruno Thamgan is doing what he normally does on his home island of Yap, carving canoes. But this time he is doing it much quicker. "What takes me two months to do back home in Yap, Micronesia only takes me two days to do here. The equipment is much faster than what we have." Bruno is here with a crew of four, including his sone who will be the first graduate of the Yap Traditional Maritime Institute. The school was founded in 2006 and strives to perserve traditional Yapese canoe building, sailing, and navigating practices. "There are not very many people that can build canoes. I am the last of a breed that knows how to build canoes in the traditional Yapese way. I want to pass it on to my kids and children of Yap." Festival coordinators look forward to seeing the different styles of canoe building each year. Mahalo to Chief Bruno and all the participants in this year's International Festival of Canoes. We can't wait to see what Maui plans for its 12th annual event. ""

She's pretty damned alright in my book, man! Are those authentic Hawaiian chainsaws they're using?
