Presentation Topic - From Shore to Summit

Traditional Hawaiian land-use practices recognize the interconnected relationships between the reefs, watersheds, rivers, valleys, plains, and mountains.  Access to each area was considered essential for the life of a community.  This ahupua'a system or division of the wao as well as the kapu worked to regulate land use and maintain a sustainable system of aquaculture, agriculture, and natural resource management.  Learn how this information is encoded in chants and hula, and used today by modern cultural practicioners.
