1st Saturdays are our Community Workdays at Kuhiawaho. Join us tomorrow, December 1, 2018 for the last workday of this year. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kuhiawaho is an ʻili ʻāina within the ahupuaʻa of Waiawa. Sitting on the coast of the waters of Puʻuloa, it is guarded by the great shark goddess, Kaʻahupahau. Since 2010, the ʻohana Kaʻōpua-Fitzgerald have been here on behalf of Kamehameha Schools, striving to provide Kanaka ʻŌiwi leadership opportunities and instill kanaka identity through ʻāina based stewardship.
He aliʻi ka ʻāina; He kauā ke kanaka.
The land is chief; People are its servant.
– Mary Kawena Pukui

Kākuhihewa was taken to ʻEwa and raised by his kahu at Waipiʻo, Waiawa, and Mānana on the fat awa fish of Kuhia and the sweet mullet of Pauhala. ʻEwa was a land much loved by Kākuhihewa.
