Cikaat! Ocean Hooligans

Adelynn Moses (5yo) with her first braided cikaaqs her Ap’a Joe caught along the shore of Nelson Island. “The last known hooligan run was in 2016 and we finally harvested some this year!” says mom Melanie. “The 2016 run was also her Alii Shayna’s first time braiding hooligans.” The braided fish is hung on a traditional Nelson Island fish rack.
