Today’s adventure was broken up into three parts all in which we were able to explored our own ‘ahupua`a. Our day began at Lyman Ranch a private owned property located at the base of our surrounding mountains. There we were greeted by Uncle Eric Enos who then educated us of the cultural structures and uses of that piece of land. Structures such as an ‘ahu (altar) and acres of what was once (‘uala) sweet potatoes mounds. As we hiked to where we ideally thought the ‘ahu was we were surrounded by the majestic mountains that make up our valley. Although we were unsuccessful in finding the ‘ahu being in an area of such cultural purpose was fulfilling. As lunch approached we headed down to Zubland’s for some water quality testing. Sampling both water from the ocean and Honiniwai (commonly known as “Stink Pond”), we tested both samples for pH, conductivity and, salinity. We also had the opportunity to plant kulekule and, pohinahina to the left side of the marsh-like pond. Clearing, the invasive pickleweed to extend the cleared plot there that will be used for future planting. As our time at Zubland’s ended we ended our day at Nanakuli ranch. There we joined in a circle and reflected on what was once in our valley and our personal thoughts for what the future holds. Although, beforehand we took into consideration that although visual we could not see any water multiple large monkeypod trees flourished.
