Save The Hāna coast
Ke Ao Hali‘i (protective blanket of clouds).
Ke Ao Hali'i (KAH) was formed early in 2018 with the purpose to protect Hāna lands.
Hāna moku is considered one of Hawai'i's "wahi pana" (legendary places) due to the volume & significance of local myths.
PRESERVE THE 'AINA - PERPETUATE THE CULTURE
The Maka’alae and Mokae coastline in Hana is undeveloped open space – and we intend to keep it that way.
Preserving and protecting these coastal lands does more than just keep them beautiful and natural. There are many other considerations and reasons to ensure these lands stay the way they are now:
- Historic & Cultural Concerns:
- Preserving existing Heiau, safeguard burial grounds, provide locations for traditional ceremonial practices, ensure access to fishing grounds and fishing rights
- Educational Opportunities
- Understand appropriate watershed management, learn about edible coastal plant food sources, combining programs with Hawaiian language, learn to care for the land
- Environmental Incentives
- Protect environments for threatened wildlife, promote responsible use of coastal & marine resources, create rest & rejuvenation areas for endangered sea & bird life
