About

Ho‘okahewai ho‘oulu ‘āina: “make the water flow and the land flourishes” is the mana‘o of Ka Papa Lo‘i ‘O Kānewai since its rebirth in 1980. As Director of Kānewai, Makahiapo has shared this mana‘o with thousands who visit the Lo’i from all over the world. Makahiapo is a member of ‘Onipa‘a Nā Hui Kalo and Mālama Hāloa. These organizations are made up of local kalo farmers dedicated to protecting the integrity of Native Hawaiian kalo varieties.
