University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter presents the transcript of an interview with Uncle Roy Benham, kūpuna and well-known maker of lei hala. One lesson learned from the conversation with Uncle Roy is the importance of ha'i mo'olelo. Uncle Roy so perfectly demonstrates that as moʻolelo are told, one story reminds us of another story, sometimes of the past and sometimes of the future. Therefore, the transcript is not presented chronologically or thematically. Instead, it is presented as Uncle Roy told it so that readers may enjoy not only his manaʻo about hala but also his classic kūpuna style of haʻi moʻolelo.

Keywords:   lei hala, interviews, Uncle Roy Benham, weaving, weavers, moʻolelo
