E ‘IKE HOU IĀ LĀNA‘I — TO KNOW LĀNA‘I ONCE AGAIN SUMMER ENRICHMENT CAmp, day 9, june 23, 2016 

Tomorrow they begin working the land, laying their hands where kūpuna worked before them.

They reviewed historical accounts written as early as 1828, in Hawaiian and English, learned about the value of kalo in Hawaiian life and genealogies, visited areas where kūpuna once worked and lived, and took time to do creative writing of their own, exploring their sense of place in this storied valley.
