ʻAimalama: E Mauliauhonua – Readapting to Ancestral Knowledge for Survival
Written by: Kalei Nuʻuhiwa, Olani Lilly, Malia Nobrega-Olivera and Micky Huihui
This paper is written as a documentation of bearing witness to the empowerment we can collectively have by engaging with each other and with our environment. Let us not wait for others to provide solutions that solve our problems. Let us uplift one another, bear witness and recognize the changes, and rely upon our ancestor’s survival methodologies to adapt to those changes that are happening now to assure that our peoples and our practices will continue to exist in the future.

2014 ‘Aimalama Symposium Report (PDF, 9.4 MB)
In October 2014, LAMA partnered with Kalei Nuʻuhiwa and Kamaʻaha Education Initiative to organize the ʻAimalama Symposium. The primary purpose of the symposium was to engage, listen, and learn from one another as lunar calendar practitioners and to enhance the collective knowledge and skills of the participants regarding the use of the Kaulana Mahina (ancient Hawaiian lunar calendar). We invited cultural experts, practitioners, and leaders from different islands to collaborate in building a strong kahua for the lunar calendar practitioners network and to provide feedback on the draft LAMA Kilo Honua resources. Questions regarding this report may be directed to Malia Nobrega-Olivera, HSHK Director of Strategic Partnerships and Community Engagement/Director of LAMA, at email@example.com.
