DESCRIPTION

Grounded in the belief that Hawaii’s native ecosystems provide the cultural heart of its people and the basis for traditional material culture, community-based Native Hawaiian restoration and conservation organization ‘Ahahui Mālama I Ka Lōkahi envisions a healthy Hawaiian ecosystem natured by human communities. 

Join community cultural health planner Mei Ling Isaacs  and Lehua Abrigo  for an exploration of residents’ efforts to restore Kawainui Marsh (Fishpond) a significant habitat for native species and an important historical and cultural site. Their  organization’s focus on research, education, and active stewardship provides a model for community-led and nurtured stewardship of and kinship with the environment.
