POW WOW HAWAII 2012: Part II

Here’s the second part of the Pow Wow Hawaii 2012 recap video. This part begins with a hunt for a wild boar that we would later eat at the Luau to close out the event. Local artists Kamea Hadar, Solomon Enos, Prime, and Cambodian artist Peap Tarr also talk a little bit about their work. These interviews really capture the spirit of the event for me, and it’s really just a small taste. There were about 40 local and international artists painting murals together last year.
