Please join us for our first Kaʻehu Planning Workshop hosted by Kaʻehu, Kauahea Inc, and the
County of Maui.  The goal of this workshop is to begin the creation of a long-term land
restoration and cultural preservation plan, to transform the area, situated between the Wailuku
River Mouth and Pakele Place, which includes wetlands, two streams, fresh water springs,
ancient ‘auwai (irrigation ditches) and loʻi (taropatches), traditional house and other cultural
sites, as well as an extensive native flora and fauna, 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.

Since this is an invitation-only event, for a limited number of people, we will remove your name
from our list if we do not hear from you by the deadline, so that others can participate in this
exciting planning process. Please note that this invitation is non-transferable.

Spearheaded by Ka’ehu, a non-profit organization, which recently acquired the right of entry to
the area from Maui County, this community-designed and controlled 2-day planning workshop,
will be facilitated by Kū Kahakalau, PhD, of Kū-A- Kanaka LLC and bring together multiple
community partners including Kauahea Inc., Hale Hoʻolana, the Makahiki Athletic Association
(MA’A), and Mamoliʻi Productions, Hawaiian ‘ohana and individuals, with traditional ties to
this area, professionals in the areas of architecture, energy sustainability, civil engineering, water
hydrology, and land management, and cultural practitioners from Maui and beyond, with
expertise in hula, ʻōlelo Hawai’i, moʻolelo, mo’okū’auhau, lua, traditional navigation, traditional
arts, including lauhala weaving and stone carving, lomilomi, lā’au lapaʻau, etc., to create a long-
range plan to protect and revitalize this pristine area for present and future generations.
