How to lash Hawaiian fish hook necklace

For many years lashing the fish hook necklace was a tradition passed down from generation to generation. In Hawaii, students learn from their teachers also known as kumus. And finding the right teacher can be a long journey in itself.

Here’s how I found the secret to lash the Hawaiian fish hook necklace. There is a passage spoken by the great teacher Jesus that goes like this. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (Matthew 7:7)

Everyday in my search to find out how to lash the fish hook, I would go to the ocean in Waikiki and pray, “God show me the way”. “Show me the secret to attaching the chord to the rope”. So I looked along the beach and found an uncle sitting and sanding the makau. I asked him if he would show me and he said, “I don’t even know how to do it, I just carve the makau and my friend lashes the hook to the chord for me”.

I walked away in disbelief thinking there has to be a way to find out the secret to lashing…so I actually quit searching for a few months and gave up. Then one day I decided to carve again and seek out to learn how to lash the fish hook necklace! I went to the park to carve and a man asked me what I was doing, and I told him carving…but I just don’t know how to lash the makau. I’ve been searching for almost a year now!

He said, “Don’t worry my friend knows how and I think if you gave him a call he would show you.” “What, no way”! I thought.

I called his friend and after searching and not quitting I learned how to lash the Hawaiian fish hook necklace.
