Please join us, as we commemorate the official launch of an exciting community collaboration to
rejuvenate the area of Kaʻehu Bay situated between the Wailuku River Mouth and Pakele Place. This area
was once known as the "breadbasket" of Northwest Maui, with hundreds of loʻi (taro patches)
and lokoʻiʻa (fish ponds) and a thriving community of Hawaiian farmers and fishermen.
Featuring hula, chant, song and storytelling, the Kaʻehu Planning Launch Pāʻina will introduce
you to the rich history of this pristine 64-acres of shoreline and its valuable resources. We will
also share with you our innovative, inclusive community-designed and controlled planning
process, to begin our land restoration and cultural preservation efforts to turn Kaʻehu Bay into a
thriving self-sustaining cultural complex and learning destination for Hawaiian practitioners and
learners of all ages who want to perpetuate Hawaiian culture and language into the future.
This evening celebrates the start of a partnership and joint planning effort involving Kaʻehu, a
non-profit organization, which recently acquired the right of entry from the County of Maui for
Kaʻehu Bay, and multiple community partners including Kauahea Inc., Hale Hoʻolana, the
Makahiki Athletic Association (MAʻA), and Mamoliʻi Productions, as well as a group of
Hawaiian ʻohana and individuals, with traditional ties to this area.
