Dr. Paul Brennan and Dr. Chuck Burrows will lead an archaeological and historical sites tour on April 6th from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. We will see Ulupo Heiau then car pool to “old Kailua”, Liliuokalani’s Retreat and Kukapoki Heiau in upper Maunawili Valley. Participants will learn how the early Hawaiians managed the natural resources of the Kailua ahupua’a and how Chinese and Japanese farmers grew their rice crops and engaged in truck farming in Kawainui and Maunawili. The tour is sponsored by Ahahui Malama I ka Lokahi, the Kailua Historical Society and the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club. A donation of $10 is suggested and reservations will be limited to 30 persons. We will car pool between sites. Participants should have good footwear and bring bug spray, water and snacks.

    Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome site!
