Lālākea Loko I‘a Reactivation in Na Wahi Pana O Waipi‘o "...make the Valley whole once again" April 7, 2017, 8 a.m., Waipi‘o Valley Lookout and Valley, Hawai‘i - The Lālākea Loko Wai Hui, the Honokaa community, and members of the Kua’aina Ulu ‘Auamo (KUA, a statewide network of Hawai‘ian fishpond care practitioners) will gather at the lookout for welcome protocols. At 9a.m., they will then descend to the Valley floor to gather once again at the punawai (spring) of Lālākea fishpond. At the spring, KUA members will add a rock from their Loko I‘a to a kuahu built to commemorate the ponds rebirth. This event will take place almost 71 years ago to the day that the Aleutian Island Earthquake triggered a massive tsunami that struck the Hawai'ian Islands on April Fool's Day, 1946, killing 159, also devastating Lalakea Loko I'a in Waipi'o Valley.. The Hamakua community cordially invites all people who share a love for na wahi pana o Waipi‘o e Lālākea Loko I‘a to join with us for the reactivation ceremony at the fishpond.
