Our project was inspired by the desire of our kupuna (elder) limu (native Hawai’ian algae) practitioners who noticed a steady decline of our native limu along the shoreline of which we live. Our ever changing marine ecosystem has also made evident a decline of much of our natural marine resources that for generations has provided for our subsistence lifestyle. We work towards restoration of our shoreline and ocean resources, with the goal of teaching and educating our future generations to the importance of our native limu not only as a food source but its cultural relevance, and its connection to all of our marine resources as well as the overall health of our island(s).
