Handcrafted by Nanikaimi

I was born and raised on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. I have danced hula by chant and traditional instruments and played the ukulele. After moving away, I wanted to reconnect with my Hawaiian & Maori culture. I began reading many Hawaiian books about crafts, plants, songs, chants and dances. Missing the islands and wanting to share my culture with others, I began crafting about 6 years ago and opened Nanikaimi Hale Ku`ai, LLC, an online store in 2021.  I have donated necklaces to the volunteers of the Hokulea, a Polynesian voyaging society and made over 80 small sized ipu gourd instruments for an elementary school in Colorado. I enjoy spreading my culture to the world through the products that I create.

Nanikaimi Hale Ku ai, LLC is a small business located in Layton, Utah.
