Eia Hawaiʻi Lecture Series
Location: Campus Center 301
The Eia Hawai`i Lecture Series will feature Kau Lā`au: Traditional Hawaiian Fishing Techniques with Clarence Aku Hauanio on Thursday, January 23 from 2:00-3;30 p.m. in Campus Center, room 301. Please feel free to post the attached flyer and share this information with your students and others.
Hawaiian fisherman, Aku Hauanio, of Kalapana was born and raised in Kalapana, Hauanio grew up at the ocean throwing net, diving, ‘a‘ama (black crab) gathering, pounding ‘opihi (limpets) and fishing in the kau lā`au la‘au and ma‘ama‘a, style as his father and grandfather did before him. Hauanio currently works at Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park with the Nene Program and pest eradication.
Traditional Hawaiian fishing techniques are still being passed from generation to generation in a few Hawaiian families. Aku Hauanio will discuss lore and sustainable fishing practices performed by his ancestors. Kau lā'au, which is locally referred to as "hang-baiting," involves the use of a stout 'ōhi'a pole. While modern fishing equipment and tournaments pull countless fish from the sea each year, some Hawaiians, like Hauanio, are preserving the traditional methods of fishing for ulua. The ulua is a species of crevalle, jack, or pompano and is significant in Hawaiian culture.
Kīpuka Native Hawaiian Student Center is cosponsoring this event in collaboration with the Keauhou-Kahalu`u Education Group, Kamehameha Schools and the Kohala Center. The aim of these workshops is to develop a Hawaiian World View and the theme is Environmental Kinship. Flyers and videos of previous lectures can be found at this link: kipuka.uhh.hawaii.edu/news/eiahawaii.php. The lecture is free and open to the public.
This workshop will be repeated on Friday, January 24th 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.
