Description: An essay by Lois Stokes, with speculations on the role of string figures in Hawaiian culture.
It has been said that the spirit of the string figures was a guardian spirit of shamans. It is now the time for me to tell the story of how I met this ancestral spirit and how my husband and I became caretakers of a knowledge so ancient that it appeared to have been lost and forever forgotten. We have been given a gift from the ancestors and we want to acknowledge it as a living treasure and share its mystery with you.
