Hui Hoʻoleimaluō

Hui Hoʻoleimaluō is focused on loko ia (Hawaiian fishpond) restoration in the ahupuaa (land division) of Waiakea on the South East Island of Hawaii. Traditional Hawaiian fishponds offer a sustainable way to increase access to local food year-round and also provide a way to connect families and communities with the land around them. Hui Hoʻoleimaluō engages students, teachers and families in the restoration and maintenance of Keaukahaʻs unique loko i’a (fishpond) and loko wai (anchialine pool) in a way that promotes the prudent use of Hawaiʻi’s natural resources, protects watershed systems, and supports resilience of the coastal environment.
