This chapter explores the life of Elizabeth Maluihi Lee, a living treasure and master lau hala weaver from Kona, Hawaii. She tells how she has continued to share her knowledge of the art of lau hala weaving with the community throughout her life. As the founder and president of the Ka Ulu Lauhala o Kona weaving organization, she explains how its annual conference was established and how this event has welcomed other master weavers to share their knowledge of lau hala weaving with the community to perpetuate this art form for current and future generations. The author also discusses the different styles of piko that Aunty Maluihi uses in weaving a pāpale lau hala and that of her own grandfather, Ernest Enoka Kaʻohelauliʻi, a master lau hala weaver from Puʻuwai Niʻihau. Aunty Maluihi also shares her wisdom about the proper way of wearing pāpale lau hala with adornments.
