Heart of the Wa'a:  a Hawai'i Island book project


Heart of the Wa'a is a Hawai'i Island project documenting the traditions, ceremonies and lifestyle of outrigger canoe paddlers. A large coffee table style book is in the works featuring exclusive photographs, elder "kupuna" stories and club profiles detailing everything from club uniqueness to their cherished koa canoes. Alexis Ching and Dino Morrow have collaborated to bring an intimate and comprehensive perspective on this one of a kind paddling culture.
