Primitive Cooking – Primitive

Originally taken on September 8, 2006 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

No, these people are not primitive themselves (note the watch on the wrist of the man in back), but they are showing us the tradition of the Hawaiian lu’au while we were on our honeymoon on Hawaii’s Big Island. In the tradition, the main part of the feast is the pig which is cooked in an underground oven called an imu – a primitive cooking skill!

This was a tough topic, and I have to mention a few of the links I came across for PhotoFriday that I thought were particularly notable for “Primitive”:
Evanfall Photography – “Don’t Beat Yourself Up”
Terra – “People of the Highland, Irainjaya, Indonesia”
Les aventures de la Chouette – “Greniers au rez-de-chaussée”

  1. I was born in the Philippines, and I remember our families used to do something similar to that. And thank you for the recognition. Btw, I’m loving the Holiday light series!
