Accompanied by uncle Arthur Aiu we gathered at the bottom of the trail to offer our oli (chant) to ask for permission to enter and to be guided by our kupuna throughout our journey that day. As our journey begins, we entered the tunnel with the cool water at our feet. The 1,500 feet stretch was filled with `ike (knowledge) of the history and scientific background of the tunnel. As we walked alongside the sixty-three year old pipe, we observed the various characteristics of the tunnel. Once we approached the split in the tunnel, we listened to the numerous mo’olelo (stories) unique to the untouched waters of Waihe’e. Stories of Papa (earth mother) and Wakea (sky father) and the nine month collection time, a mother hauling water for her child and so much more. As we ventured to both sides of the tunnel, we compared both sides to each other. The dry bulkhead hold pipes filled with cement to help flush the water to the wet side of the bulkhead. The wet bulkhead seeped water from the ceiling providing a once in a lifetime opportunity to consume untouched water by choice. Being lead by `anakala (uncle) Arthur, we joined for “E ho Mai” asking for the hidden knowledge in chants and requesting that our kupuna be the steersman of our education.
