Ka Papa Lo'i o Kanewai
Ka Papa Lo'i o Kanewai is a Hawaiian cultural research and outreach program organizationally housed in Hawai'inuiakea School of Hawaiian Knowledge at UH Manoa. In the ahupua'a of Waikiîki, Kanewai is the only centrally located venue in Honolulu that provides a culturally place-based experiential learning center and a pu'uhonua.
In 1980, several students from UH Manoa re-discovered the abandoned 'auwai at Kanewai and restored its flow of water, after which they planted kalo and other native plants in the areas surrounding the lo'i.
The group became known as Ho'okahewai Ho'oulu 'Aina based on the philosophy "make the water flow, make the land productive." Along with the guidance of kupuna such as Uncle Harry Kûnihi Mitchell and 'Anakala Eddie Kaanana, the traditional practices have been perpetuated for future generations to experience.
By serving as a cultural resource center, Kanewai focuses its work on perpetuating and preserving Native Hawaiian customary and traditional practices of natural resource management. Activities like first Saturdays, UH classes, school, and community groups visit on a regular basis to engage in malama 'aina at the lo'i and preserve many Hawaiian kalo varieties.
Kanewai has formed a partnership with Kamehameha Schools 'Aina 'Ulu program. Through this program, Kanewai opened a sister site in Punalu'u, within the Ko'olauloa district of O'ahu, which provides an alternative site for participants and students to experience lo'i at a grander scale.
