Ulupō Lo‘i

Ulupō Lo‘i

November 03, 2018

08:30 AM - 12:00 PM

1200 Kailua Road, Kailua, HI 96734

Learn firsthand how Native Hawaiians cultivated kalo (taro) in the ahupua‘a of Ko‘olaupoko (a land division that ran from mountain to ocean and divided resources for the people).  Join us in this unique opportunity to work in the mud at Ulupō Lo‘i (taro patch) and learn about the significance of kalo (taro) in the Native Hawaiian community.  The Hawai’i Spotlight program provides opportunities for students to explore different parts of the island and learn about the Hawaiian culture and the community we live in. It focuses on the core values of the University: Aloha, Kuleana and Pono. Students will explore what each value means and identify ways to exemplify these values in their daily lives. These events are scheduled once per month.


Don’t forget we will get muddy! What does that mean? Bring an old towel, clothes (shorts and t-shirt), a water bottle, and a hat.


Bring a sense of ADVENTURE to the lo‘i!
