The Hawaii House Blog also covered the event.

Thelma Dreyer’s recent blog postingĀ  “Poi Pounder’s” described the event as:

…This festival was not just about providing a gathering place for taro lovers and poi pounders , it was also a place to plant the seed of awareness about the importance of taro and the Hawaiian culture as a whole. I hope that this festival was the fertilization needed to stimulate the new crop growth of the education and preservation of the Hawaiian culture.

You can also see a slide show of pictures from the event on the Hawaii House Blog here.
