Looking out into Heʻeia Fishpond, I can see many years of hard work right before my eyes. My ancestors spent years passing rocks from mauka (mountain) to makai (ocean). The intelligence of our kupuna is why this fishpond has been feeding so many past generations. It was the legacy that was left for my generation’s kuleana to maintain this fishpond. I’ve volunteered at Paepae ʻo Heʻeia numerous times and each time I go, the experience makes me want to come back even more.
