Canoe Tour Donate To Maui Fishpond

Volunteers help us maintain the fishpondʻs wall every month.

Our Education and Outreach Programs

We believe in perpetuating our culture through community education and outreach.

Our fishpond is alive!

Honu can be found resting along our shores and on the wall. Mahalo for admiring them from afar.

Aloha and Welcome To Maui Fishpond!


A Note to Our Supporters – Our programs are temporarily on hold for now

We value everyone’s safety, health and well-being and as our island and the rest of the world deals with COVID-19 at this time, we will be joining efforts to help prevent the spread of the virus. Therefore, we will temporarily halt conducting our normal education, restoration and canoe tour activities until it is safe for everyone to be in our community once again. Thank you for your understanding and if you have any questions or concerns, please email us at [email protected]  Stay safe and healthy!  


On a side note, the programs that we provided created donation income which supported our non-profit’s various programs, operational expenses, including an annual lease fee, insurance policies, utilities, etc. We are in need of raising $5,000 by the end of the year, to supplement this loss of funding. If you’d like to make a donation, we’d greatly appreciate it. Mahalo for your consideration.


‘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.
