   You can see Kilohana peak at the top of Kalihi valley from Mokauea, a tiny island just off the coastline.  Over forty fishponds once laced the area, ali‘i had summer residences , and a struggle over land rights literally blazed on the island in the 1970’s.  Today, we board a canoe with HPR’sNoeTanigawa, for a visit.

Due to past experiences, the Mokauea Fisherman’s Association requests that any visits or requests for information be arranged through Kehaulani Kupihea (Mokauea@gmail.com).

There are more pictures and links on the Mokauea Island Facebook page.
