The Waimānalo Limu Hui partnered with KUA to host their biggest limu planting since before the pandemic. This event specifically was held to celebrate the Year of the Limu!
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.
In the precious hours leading up to a long-anticipated site visit with Dept of Aquatic Resources, the Kīpahulu ʻohana received a small group of visitors as lawaiʻa from Hāʻena (Kaua’i), Miloliʻi (Hawai’i), and Moʻomomi (Molokai) reunited in Kīpahulu (Maui) alo he alo.
