AVA Konohiki: Ancestral Visions of ÔÇś─Çina

This presentation will be an overview of the goals of the Kamakak┼źoka╩╗─üina Grant and how Graduate Research Assistants (GRA's) harvested, transcribed, combined and indexed, land documents and provided them on a website, full text searchable for all. Kamakak┼źoka╩╗─üina literally means "a vision of the land." The name of the organization, AVA, stands for ÔÇťAncestral Visions of ╩╗─Çina." ╩╗─Çina refers to "land that one eats from." Their long term goal is to be food sustainable and to train young Native Hawaiians to be Konohiki, or traditional Hawaiian Land Stewards, who manage the water, land, agricultural and fishing resources. An explanation of the following terms "LCA", "FT", "NT" will be discussed, and how they can be useful when searching on the website avakonohiki.org. Lastly asking the question, How can we be of service?

K┼źlani Mahinaarangi Jeremiah-Wong:
K┼źlani is a full-time mother, young grandmother and wife who had the determination to go back to school. A recent graduate of the University Hawaii at M─ünoa, K┼źlani has both her Bachelors & Masters degrees in Hawaiian Studies. Her thesis, "Na Palapala╩╗aina i Loko o Na Mele" is about Hawaiian land and how the ancestors used songs to create an intellectual map of the Hawaiian Islands. It also looks at the mapping of our ÔÇś─üina well before any Westerners arrived and before the knowledge of our land was put onto paper. K┼źlani enjoys time spent with her ohana and reading novels about everything Polynesian.

Jenny Moanikeala Estrella:
Jenny has graduated with a degree in Information Systems from Brigham Young University Hawai╩╗i and a degree in Hawaiian Studies from UH M─ünoa. Currently she is a graduate student in Educational Foundations and a GRA with Kamakakuokaaina. Jenny enjoys education as evident in her efforts to home-school her three children ages 3, 5 and 9 and her plans to research Hawaiian based teaching methodologies found within the ╩╗ohana through mo╩╗olelo and experiential learning.

Raymond Kaimana Estrella:
Ray is a graduate of Brigham Young University Hawai╩╗i and is currently a master's student in Hawaiian Studies as UH M─ünoa. He is also a GRA with Kamakakuokaina and is focusing his research on the ╩╗oiwi perspective and ahupua╩╗a connectivity within land research of the Kahuku ahupua╩╗a of Ko╩╗olauloa, O╩╗ahu.

This workshop will be repeated on Friday, November 15th in Kona at the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay from 5:30-7:00 p.m. for their Puana Ka ╩╗Ike Lecture Series.
