Visit to Hoakalei Cultural Preserve – June 20, 2018

Members of the Hoakalei Cultural Foundation area keiki went out along the shoreline where they learned about limu and restoration of the shoreline. They cleaned up ‘ōpala (rubbish and debris), heard mo'olelo (traditions) of the area and made a lei limu kala (a lei of limu kala – a type of seaweed that in traditional times was used for purification and healing). When complete, the keiki took the lei limu kala to Pu'uloa Beach Park and placed it on the reef  with the hope of restoring limu growth in the area. The keiki were led by Ku'uwaInani, Kim, Pua and Kerrie, who are all part of the cultural foundation.
