The purpose of this huaka'i was to explore Honiniwai Stream (aka Stink Pond) and the surrounding area known as Zablans. We tested both the ocean and stream water for things like pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, salinity, and temperature using water quality test kit tablets as well as probes to collect and compile data that we can compare later on in class. Although we tested the water, we also did a little bit of community service, such as cleaning the rocky area of any debris like glass, plastic bags, and fishing line. Another essential point is that we were looking at the diffirent types of plankton that were in the Honiniwai stream and from the ocean. Additionally, Aunty Elsie Ryder from Alu Like taught us about how the beach “Keaulanas” got its name and what resources were abundant here like pa'akai (salt) and limu. She also taught us how to make salt natrually in the reef. My highlight of the day was collecting the sea water because I kinda got wet when I went to grab the water and eating lunch and talking story with everyone at Alu Like.
