“It has been a dream of mine to present our kupuna on video and to share their life history,” said Cindi Punihaole, public outreach and volunteer coordinator with The Kohala Center, which manages the Kahaluu Bay Project.

“In this way we are able to continue the heritage of our Hawaiian culture. An important part of our work at The Kohala Center is to understand the culture,” she said. “If you understand the culture you can understand the environment. We are about understanding what was in the past in order to understand where to go. Kupuna guide us to restore the beach and bay at Kahaluu in a rightful and respectful way-the pono way for our children.”

The “Stories of Kahaluu and Keauhou” DVD is available from The Kohala Center or can be viewed at….
