The UH Mānoa Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) will host a seminar on Thursday, October 7, at 3 p.m. in Watanabe Hall room 420. Carlos Andrade, PhD, director of the Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies at UH Mānoa's Hawai'inuiākea School of Hawaiian Knowledge, will deliver a seminar titled "The Ahupua'a and the Myth of Self Sustainability."
The talk will deconstruct contemporary definitions of the ahupua'a. Andrade will also explore how concepts found in the traditional and customary practices of hoa'aina who lived in ahupua'a affect efforts of Malama 'Aina (resource management/conservation) in contemporary times.
