This chapter presents the author's moʻolelo of the research project, Wehe I Ka Pāpale, aimed at uncovering or unlocking the ʻike of making pāpale to preserve the generative knowledge that will perpetuate this traditional and customary practice of pāpale for current and future generations of Kanaka. What started simply as a research endeavor to gather information about pāpale lau hala traditions in Hawaii, through oral interviews, turned into a journey of professional and personal exploration, cultural connections, and identity formation. More than just telling a story, the author engages the art of ulana. From the stories trustingly shared through Wehe I Ka Pāpale, she weaves a moena decorated with beautiful pāwehe that are the unique details of each storyteller's life as a practitioner of ulana.
