Loco

BY KEONE NUNES
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 16, 2013

Keone Nunes had grown up exposed to family members who still spoke the native Hawaiian language and elders who still remembered the tribal practices of their past. His talk will touch on the art of tapping, a rare technique left in the world.

Quite suitable, I think.
