Ke Aloha Nui Uncle John Lind

Uncle John Lind of Kīpahulu ʻOhana passed on earlier today. The family loses a husband, brother, father, uncle and grandfather. Kīpahulu and East Maui lost an elder lawaiʻa and mahiʻai, an icon among taro farmers and quiet leader who with his ohana perpetuated a way of life amidst great change in Kīpahulu. Uncle John was respected in the tradition of konohiki for his community. He pointed the way forward.
