Project Malama Ola

MAHALO NA KUPUNA! Mahalo to our ancestors for giving us the opportunity to participate in watershed resource management in Hanalei. Mahalo no ho’i to our kupuna for bringing us Art Mersberg (Anahola) & Jackie Correa (Haena) who are at the forefront of this hau bush maintenance and cultural restoration on Hanalei River! We are carefully tracking our work by documenting our observations everyday and look forward to sharing our progress each week through social media and our website. It feels so MAIKAI to be engaged in MALAMA AINA; work that assists our Kauai people (KANAKA & KAMAAINA alike) in a small way, to restore some very important WAHI KUPUNA so that our fishing traditions and customs can survive. We come before our community in humility to ask for your continued grace and support for Project Malama Ola. May we continue to be blessed with funding to continue this project that provides jobs for others in our community in need of good, honest, and impactful work. E OLA!
