ʻEWA ʻĀINA INVENTORY
Nohopapa is currently working with KS on an innovative ‘Āina Inventory that incorporates a synthesis of historical research, ethnographic information, wahi pana data, and the current stewardship and restoration efforts taking place in the moku to create a richer understanding of ʻEwa’s historical and contemporary cultural landscape. The inventory will support the development of collaborative and innovative strategies to increase availability and access to quality Āina Based Education (ABE) & Hawaiian Culture Based Education (HCBE) educational opportunities for learners in the region. The ‘Āina Inventory will also help support the development of ABE & HCBE curriculum and create processes to build a shared community sense of place. Below is an example of an interactive GIS map that was created for this project that shows the location of the former and current fishponds in Puʻuloa.
