We have the wonderful opportunity this year to work with Hui Kaha Pohaku (Group That Draws the Placement of Stones) on the Kona side of our island. Students who have expressed interest in helping to map Kaneaka (the name of a 2-mile long holua slide) are heading to Kona several times this year. We are learning plane table mapping, camping overnight, and absorbing so much from our aunties and uncles there at the Keauhou-Kahalu‘u Education Group: Uncle Keone Kalawe, Uncle Mahealani Pai, Aunty Darlene Martin, and Aunty Kalei Nuuhiwa We are so honored and excited to have this opportunity!
Charter School Association Office interviews Holua student leader
When the videographer hired by the CSAO came by Hui Malama to see what we could contribute to a short film about charter schools, Koa'e was interviewed and filmed about our work at Kaneaka. Maybe some of the footage will make it into the final product, who knows? We do know that Koa'e did a great job, filmed like a natural, and represented Hui Malama and Hui Kaha Pohaku well.
