In Hawaiian culture, a kapa kuiki or in Cook Islands culture, a tivaevae is a large handmade bedspread or quilt. To make a kapa kuiki or tivaevae, one starts with a large piece of material, then cuts out designs from other pieces of material, and appliques the designs onto the first piece of material. In Hawai`i, traditional kapa kuiki designs reflect nature or everyday household objects, evoking the the memory of loved ones, and do not use humans or animals in the designs. In the Cook Islands, the aim of the tivaevae design is to make a picture, tell a story, most often record a family history, or reproduce a family-held pattern. `Ulu, breadfruit, was brought to Hawai`i by the voyaging Polynesians. `Ulu was a staple food and was important in the cultural and spiritual life of ancient Hawaiians. Using a Hawaiian tradition, this lesson will have each student making an ‘ulu breadfruit quilt design signifying and leading each student to a fruitful life, never starving for wisdom or knowledge.
