This third season of Ka Leo o ka Uluau consists of 12 episodes that begin in January ~ Kāʻelo (alternatively Kaliʻu) 2023 with a shift in focus from Hawaiian sustainable practices (Season II 2022) and moʻolelo wahi pana (Season I 2021) to our pilina ~ relationship with Manu, the native birdlife of Hawaiʻi nei, in partnership with the group ʻĀhuimanu.
Season III episodes are released throughout the year on the Hilo moon phase of every malama, also known as mahina, (lunar month) to raise awareness of and honor this indigenous practice of keeping time. This segment was released January 22, 2023, the start of the Hawaiʻi lunar month of Kāʻelo (alternatively Kaliʻu).
