In the Shade of the Hale

Hale (ha lay) means "house or home" in Hawaiian.  In this particular one at Mohala Farms, there was poi pounding going on.  Poi was a staple of the ancient Hawaiians and is still very popular in the local diet.  It's made traditionally by pounding a taro corm with a special carved rock.  Look closely and you'll see the "poi pounder".
