KONA ʻĀINA INVENTORY
Kona Moku, Oʻahu - Kamehameha Schools
Nohopapa Hawaiʻi worked with Kamehameha Schools 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 Konaʻs historical and contemporary cultural landscape. The inventory supports 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 Kona ‘Āina Inventory also helps support the development of ABE & HCBE curriculum and create processes to build a shared community sense of place. For this project, because we believe the audience and users of this study will find it more useful, we have chosen to divide the five ahupua‘a in KS’ Kona, Oʻahu Region (Kalihi, Kapālama, Honolulu, Waikīkī and a portion of Waimānalo) into 15 palena that follow the 1880s Hawaiian Government Survey. These divisions are smaller than the Hawai‘i state GIS ahupua‘a divisions, but more closely reflect traditional concepts of land divisions in Kona Moku.
