Connections to Kanaloanuiākea (our oceans) with Uncle Mac Poepoe, Master Konohiki


What are your connections to Kanaloanuiākea (our oceans)? One of the few remaining Konohiki (headman of an ahupua‘a land division), Uncle Mac Poepoe shares that “Paying attention to nature, nature will tell you what to do and that’s how you conduct yourself.”

The Kanaloanuiākea series focuses on the expansive domain of all manifestations of Kanaloa, and the ways that we, ocean resource users and stewards, can contribute to its health and abundance.
