Eia Hawaii: Redefining the Kaluulu

Location: Campus Center 301

Redefining the Kaluulu: Past, Present and Future is the first of the 2012-2013 Eia Hawaii Lecture Series and features Noa Kekuewa Lincoln.

The kaluulu, a large breadfruit grove of old Kona, was a huge source of food, even during years of drought. Many famous and powerful chiefs, such as a Liloa, Umi, and Kalaniopuu and even Kamehameha I utilized Kona as the political and military center of old Hawaii. That the kaluulu cut across political boundaries and encompasses thousands of individual family plots, tells of a chief's power to mobilize efforts across the Kona region.

Noa Kekuewa Lincoln will present his research that has examined the extent and production of the kaluulu in pre-European Hawaii and also discusses contemporary projects aimed at revitalizing breadfruit as a healthy, sustainable food in the modern context.
