Join us this Saturday Dec. 11th at Ulupo Heiau to malama this wahi pana (sacred
place). At 8:30 am we will begin our Oli Kahea and have an orientation to
this mapele heiau. For those who would like to work in the loi kalo with
Hanaloa Helela may do so while the rest will work with Kaimi Scudder in the
loi wetland and bird habitat. Wear tabis or footwear when working in the loi and
shoes in the land areas. We will be cutting back the hau and bamboo,
weeding in the auwai, cutting weeds in the marsh and maybe digging out the peat
layers. Bring a cutting or digging tool, water bottles and a snack. Wear
shorts or long pants, gloves, hat and use sun screen. No slippers or open toed shoes.

We will be pau by 12:00 pm, perhaps tired, wet and dirty but you will be
thinking throughout the week on what you have done to malama this sacred
place. Call 263-8008 or email for more information.
