loko i’a or fishponds have been a intrinsic part of Hawaii for hundreds of years. In recent years there has been a resurgence of of the nearly lost cultural practice. Fishponds have now become a crucial vehicle of cultural learning. We now have the kuleana to maintain these ancient sights so that we may continue to feed the kanaka of hawaii for many years to come. This monumental task is not possible with just a single person it takes a collective effort of many hands and hearts to become possible. Our vision is to create learning centers and eventually get the fishponds fully functional with a variety of endemic species such as limu and different variety of Opihi. Through this work we can created farm to table produce that can create a self sustaining practice. Not only can we end hunger but we dare to end homelessness in hawaii. Our goal is to employ the less fortunate and empower them with education and the resources to farm and grow their own food. In order to become a more self sufficient community we must reclaim our diet. We must eliminate processed foods and genetically modified organisms from our everyday lives. We encourage those Interested to connect with us and come down and visit Kahina Pohaku Fishpond.
