Samoan Chief Skillfully Demonstrates How to Husk a Coconut With Just His Teeth

Samoan Chief Kap Husk Coconut Teeth

In a gorgeously lush video from the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii, the very amiable Chief Kap Te’o-Tafiti (“Kap”) demonstrated his amazing ability to easily husk a coconut with just his teeth.

Chief Kap Te’o-Tafiti of our Samoan Village shows how to husk a coconut… with his teeth! “No need a can opener”

In June 2016, Kap gave a brilliant presentation at TEDxPurdueU.
