Talk to explore Native Hawaiian sustainability practices

By Staff | Mar 3, 2011

A few of the Lahaina-Honolua Senior Citizens Club’s musicians and dancers who entertain at Lahaina Harbor on Boat Days recently boarded the MS Golden Princess for lunch and a tour of the ship. The ship has 17 levels, with the top level aft area housing its disco. The MS Golden Princess is 118 feet wide — 23 feet wider than the narrowest point of the Panama Canal. Pictured, from left, are Evelyn Toba, Mildred Kutsunai, May Fujiwara, June Kaaihue, George Fujiwara and Kenneth “K.K.” Keaunui.

LAHAINA — Lahaina Sustainability will sponsor a presentation on Native Hawaiian sustainability practices by Ke’eaumoku and U’ilani Kapu on Friday, March 4, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Lahaina Civic Center.

Ke’eaumoku said, “In ancient Hawaii, family councils and village councils worked together to manage Hawaii’s natural resources to ensure abundance for the people, including future generations.

“All of us living here now need to learn how to apply these principles, with Hawaiian guidance, today, so that we can save our reefs, birds, streams and medicinal plants, as well as produce healthful food for everyone.”
