Our day at Hoa 'Aina o Makaha began as we gathered under the hale. There we shared a bit about our selves things such as our name, the land that we personally tie to and, the person that we carry with us. As our time in the hale concluded we were given a tour around the land; stopping at places found significant to our hosts. Our first stop of the tour was at the "piko" of Hoa 'Aina o Makaha. The piko consisted of various stones from visitors from all over the world. One of the stones that shared about was a piece of limestone brought from Italy, the land that Mr. Gigi personally ties to. As our tour came to an end, we broke up in to groups to work (hana). From cleaning up fallen leaves from the ulu tree (breadfruit), to raking flowers to clean out the ahupua'a model and, even pulling dead leaves off of the sugarcane. The hard work that was done was our ticket to lunch. Our two hour lunch consist, pizza, fruit salad, ice cream and, salad. Everything that was consumed was made by us. As our day at Hoa 'Aina o Makaha came to end we chanted (oli) to show our respect and gratitude.
