As with all his artistic endeavors including Painting & portraiture, Surfboard building and most recently Architecture & woodworking, Roy Ruiz has been weaving lauhala as a means to connect to Puna and its indigenous culture. Under the tutelage of Kumu Lynda Saffery, he has been practicing this Polynesian craft for almost 20 years and encouraged to take on the role of being an alaka’i (guide) to future weavers. In his class, students will learn Hawaiian protocol (chanting), gathering and preparation of materials, weaving terminology in ‘olelo Hawai’i and a beginner’s project of an apo lima (bracelet or arm band).
