STEWARDSHIP | VIRTUAL HUAKAI'I
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March we have not had community volunteer groups to the fishpond. We sure have missed connecting with you all! The silver lining of not being able to have volunteers to the site is that it pushed us to find a way to stay connected to community, virtually enabling us to continue teaching traditional and cultural loko i`a practices.
In May we created a virtual huakai`i video for HI DOE Office of Hawaiian Education to share with students and staff and we want to share it with you here (~10min) . Watch our social media for the shortened versions broken out by subject including: Aloha & Ho'omakaukau (Intro & Basic Protocol), Ka Wa Kahiko (Brief History of Place), Loko i'a (Fishponds/Fish), Mea Kanu (Plants), Na Manu (Birds), and He Laulima Mai (Moving Forward)
