The Occidental College Hawaii Club welcomes guest speaker Daniel Anthony, a taro farmer from the island of Oahu, as he teaches about making Hawaiian pai ʻai and poi and Hawaiian culture, Tuesday, November 5, 2013 in the Academic Quad. Daniel Anthony demonstrated how to pound the Hawaiian food staple taro using the same methods that have been used by the Hawaiians for thousands of years by hand pounding the taro on wooden boards (papa kuʻi ʻai) using stone pounders (pōhaku kuʻi ʻai). Hawaiian activist Daniel Anthony is a farm-to-table kalo farmer with multiple taro fields located on the island of Oʻahu. With his business Mana ʻAi, Daniel has been advocating the benefits of eating kalo because of its high nutrition content and because it is dairy, soy, gluten, and GMO free, finding ways to get kalo back into homes across the state as well as popular restaurants and eateries.
