KOʻOLAU ʻĀINA INVENTORY

Koʻolaupoko & Koʻolauloa 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 Koʻolauloa and Koʻolaupoko's 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 ‘Āina Inventory also helps support the development of ABE & HCBE curriculum and create processes to build a shared community sense of place. Within the moku of Koʻolaupoko, the eleven ahupuaʻa named in this study (that stretch from Waimānalo to Kualoa) form a continuous coastal plain and are renowned for tall-peaked mountains and an abundance of freshwater. Whereas, within the moku Ko‘olauloa, the thirty-two ahupuaʻa named in this study (that stretch from Kaʻaʻawa to Waimea) are characterized by low mountains, deep valleys, and a narrow coastline.
