Five kumu from HonCC along with 20 students came out Saturday to Lo’i Kalo Park in Kalihi where they practice “malama ‘aina (caring for the land). They cleared an area of overgrowth where the spring of HonCC’s campus Mala o Niuhelewai lo’i is located.
After the work was done, the group planted kalo to commemorate the day.
The next Malama ‘Aina Day (a service learning opportunity for HonCC students) will be on the campus itself, February 10, at Mala o Niuhelewai (located next to the Children’s Center). Come and join with others to malama ‘Raina.”
