Mele Kahalepuna Chun

Mele Kahalepuna Chun started learning featherwork at the early age of 5 from her tutu, “Aunty” Mary Louise Kaleonahenahe Wentworth Peck Kekuewa, a renowned feather lei master. Mele taught classes and workshops along side her tutu and mom, Paulette Nohealani Kahalepuna, and gave talks, lectures, and ran workshops for them when they were not available. Today, Mele carries on her family legacy, runs the family shop Na Lima Mili Hulu No‘eau with great pride and knows that her tutu and mom are with her every step of the way. Mele still has her first lei hulu in her Kapahulu store!
