The Pū‘ohe is a Hawaiian bamboo trumpet. It has a deep sound somewhat like a conch shell, and like other native instruments, pū‘ohe requires the special spirit breath to produce the proper sound. Rangers and Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association staff will help you make your own pū‘ohe. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ‘Ike Hana No‘eau “Experience the Skillful Work” workshops. Free, and in Kahuku. The Kahuku Unit is a 50-minute drive south of the park’s main entrance, near mile marker 70.5 on Highway 11.
