Waiohuli archaeology topic of mini-lecture
Cheryl Mali`ikapu Moore speaks on the Waiohuli Archaeological Reserve during the Keokea Farmers Market. The latter occurs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. the second and last Saturdays of the month, in concert with Kula Hospital thrift-shop hours.
The unprecedented talk covers the 80-acre cultural reserve located at Waiohuli Phase 1-A residential homestead. The latter is the Valley Isle's newest homestead with 45 lots awarded this past September. Raised at Paukukalo homestead, Moore is vice president and secretary of the Waiohuli Undivided Interest Lessees Association representing beneficiaries of this fledgling Hawaiian homestead.
The reserve includes archaeological remains of heiau, or ancient outdoor churches; `auwai, or rock-lined canals built to guide water flow, and punawai, or streams, some along topographical features like ridges. Moore also speaks on the reserve's strategic plan that may include cleaning, restoration and native planting.
The Keokea Homestead Farm Lots Association and Pa`upena Community Development Corp., or CDC, co-sponsor this event. The Kēōkea Homestead Farm Lots Association is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit representing Maui's only agricultural homestead, encompassing 65 two-acre lots dedicated to sustainable, subsistence farming. Pa`upena CDC is a homestead organization, whose vision is to fulfill Prince Kuhio’s century-old dream for native Hawaiians to reconnect with Waiohuli ahupua`a (land section) in thriving agricultural and pastoral communities.
