Hui o kuapā fishpond


Education is the kua or backbone of the Hui o Kuapā mission. Hui o Kuapā educates the local and global community about Native Hawaiian resource management and innovations through hands on experience in the fishponds or loko iʻa as well as through advocacy of native rights and issues. The organization has been instrumental in raising awareness about the need to care for our planet and food security in rural communities. It proudly continues to carry out that mission today.

Hui o Kuapā: Restoring People and Loko Iʻa

"Prior to Western contact in 1778, there were well over 400 seaside loko iʻa throughout Hawaiʻi ranging from half an acre to 500 acres in size. Small or large, they all had kuapā (walls) up to six feet high that were excellent examples of dry-stack masonry, stones fitted together tightly with no mortar. "
