Pounding stone

Pounding stone

A pounding stone is used to prepare soft meat that can be consumed by elders. It is soft, so they can eat it. To make pounded meat for an elder is a respectful and caring thing to do. Pounded meat is also used by hunters as a light food to carry with them. It can also be used to break up bones to make bone grease. This tool was used by Madelaine Pea’a (aka Madelaine Judas, senior) in Wekweeti in the 1960s.
