Kumu Kawaikapuokalani K. Hewett
Kupu is named after the Hawaiian tree ferns which represent spiritual strength, unity and love. His Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the Fern leis he wears around his head and on his white malu (loin cloth). Tutu also crocheted Kupu's brown pants and matching shoes and crafted a belt to hold up his malu.
