Kamehameha Schools conducting ethno-historical study

Communtiy Contributed by Steve Eminger and Mina Elison

With the goal of preserving and protecting the cultural resources and traditions of their Molokai land for future generations of Hawaiians, Kamehameha Schools (KS) is conducting an ethno-historical study for the ahupua`a of Naiwa, Kalama`ula, Kamalo, Ka`amola, Keawanui and Mapulehu.  This study will gather cultural and historical information such as mo`olelo, mele, traditional and modern land use, maps and photographs through oral history interviews and archival research. As community participation is integral to documenting the rich history of these lands and learning from the past, this study will also assist KS in the management and stewardship of these areas. Please contact researchers Steve Eminger and Mina Elison at 223-9979 by Nov. 30 should you like to share your memories, mana`o and `ike.
