Preserving art thru student carvers: Part III of Carvers of Polynesia

In Part 3 – “Preserving the art of Polynesia” of our series on the Carvers of the Polynesian Cultural Center, we meet the student employees – three young men from diverse backgrounds who feel blessed to be members of the team. The senior carvers are dedicated to making sure that all three apprentices learn not only how to carve, but how to live the life of a carver – dedicated to the years of hard work and sacrifice that will be required of them, humble enough to realize the weight upon them to represent and protect the Polynesian culture, and confident enough to stretch far beyond what they think they are capable of. Clearly this is a rare opportunity to step out of the formal classroom and into the guidance of masters of their field.
