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’s Noe Tanigawa, 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).
