Ohana Service Day
The Fishpond - Paepae o He'eia
Saturday, November 23, 8:30am-12:00pm
Paepae o He`eia's vision is to perpetuate a foundation of cultural sustainability for communities ( ohana) of Hawai`i through education. Their mission is to implement values and concepts from the model of a traditional fishpond to provide intellectual, physical, and spiritual sustenance for our community. To reach their vision, they utilize the strengths of the fishpond as a place of learning to weave ancestral knowledge together with western ways of knowing to achieve their goals. Ku Hou Kuapa literally means to Let the Wall Rise Again . This program is responsible for all of the restoration and rehabilitation of the kuapa - fishpond wall - and the fishpond contained within it. The goal of this program is to restore the ancient wall in order to preserve the integrity of the fishpond and support our unique cultural, educational, and aquacultural programs.
