Waipā welcomes learners of all ages as we explore how native Hawaiian values and practices apply to modern life. The ahupua`a of Waipā provides a rich landscape for youth programs, workshops and group visits that feature transformative, hands-on learning.
Happens every Thursday morning when the community comes together to process cooked kalo into poi.
Poi Day was started about 30 years ago by the Hawaiian families along Kauai’s north shore to keep poi available and affordable.
Today, we distribute poi to kupuna and ‘ohana throughout the island.
Mahalo nui for your support!
As stewards of the ahupua`a, we are intently focused on our kuleana (responsibility) to establish and perpetuate a thriving ahupua`a as an example of healthy interdependent relationships between people and earth’s natural resources. We strive to be a leader in demonstrating Hawaiian approaches to watershed-scale natural resource management. You can kōkua (help) by attending a workday or contacting us for individual volunteer or partnership opportunities.
