>> Nuulani Atkins works on Kamehameha Schools ahupuaa-themed float, “Kuu Home, Kulaiwi Aloha.” Atkins’ father helped design the float, which was presented at the 66th Annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade on Sept. 22. The float, built on a chassis of an old KS work vehicle, took three months to complete. At this stage, the foam foundation had hardened and was being prepared for its adornments. The float used, among other materials, 8,000 white carnations, 2,000 ti-leaf rosettes, 1,800 green ti leaves, 750 sheets of nori, 500 brown satin leaves and 250 strands of hee seeds.
