Pop Up Makeke Returns for its Third Year

For the third year in a row, the pop-up makeke is returning to celebrate the Merrie Monarch Festival. From artwork to coffee to instruments, every item is handcrafted by Hawaiian artists.

HI Now host Kainoa Carlson takes a look at some of the products that will be offered at the pop-up makeke this year.

Many of this year’s goods are influenced by the preservation of native Hawaiian language and culture, including Hawaiian word games and books.
