What does Hakalau Kuleana mean?
The Hakalau Kuleana is a term used for this website to cover the area from the Kolekole River in (at about the 14 Mile Marker of Highway 19) to the Poupou Stream in (at the 20 Mile Marker). This area, up to the tree line, was the former Hakalau Plantation.
Kuleana is a uniquely Hawaiian value and practice which is loosely translated to mean "responsibility." The word kuleana refers to a reciprocal relationship between the person who is responsible, and the thing which they are responsible for.
Our collective responsibility is to care for the land, the people and the culture. With the sudden change in re-cycling opportunities, now is a good time to work together to protect the land.
