E ‘IKE HOU IĀ LĀNA‘I — TO KNOW LĀNA‘I ONCE AGAIN SUMMER ENRICHMENT CAmp, day 2, june 14, 2016

Much aloha to many volunteers and the Pūlama Lāna’i Culture & Historic Preservation crew for making the program a great experience for all.

Sharing links below to other days of program and activities.

The Kumu cohort then took haumāna through various exercises in ethnobotany, mo‘olelo of the region, creative writing, and began taking measurements to create the new plane table map of the Hi‘i heritage complex. The last map of the area was prepared by Kenneth Emory in 1921, so our haumāna are helping update the maps and documenting the changes in the landscape.

E ‘Ike Hou Iā Lāna’i – Day 2. Lāna’i Culture & Heritage Center’s Cultural Literacy Summer Program.


The Lana’i Culture & Heritage Center’s Cultural Literacy program took students up to Hi‘i along the foot hills of Lāna’i Hale. Students were led by Muffet Jourdane, Eric Komori and Pūlama Lāna’i Culture & Historic Preservation staff through a pedestrian survey of this storied landscape, where they were asked to take observations and report on what they saw on the land – manmade or natural?
