‘Ao‘ao O Nā Loko I‘a O Maui is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to revitalizing Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond for educational, archaeological, cultural and recreational purposes. We offer unique Hawaiian cultural learning experiences and fishpond revitalization opportunities for the community to engage with this important cultural and historical landmark in North Kīhei, Maui.
We are proud to be active members in Hui Mālama Loko I‘a, a growing network of fishpond practitioners and organizations from across ka paeʻāina o Hawaiʻi (the Hawaiian archipelago). The Hui was formed as an opportunity for practitioners to empower each other and leverage their skills, knowledge and resources related to restoration and management of loko iʻa (traditional Hawaiian fishponds). The Hui has met opportunistically since 2004. In May 2014, Kuaāina Ulu ‘Auamo (KUA) facilitated the largest-ever gathering at Kō‘ie‘ie Fishpond and then in Hāna, Maui, a place where fishponds and other significant fishing practices originated. We hope you enjoy the video below, showing our wonderful experience together.
