About Makai

From the Marquesas in double-hulled dugouts they sailed ma-kai (toward the sea) to windward shores of the Big Island hauling seeds and cuttings of kalo, hoi, u-ala, maia, ulu, and niu which we know as taro, yam, sweet potato, banana, breadfruit and cocoa-palm. 

 

And they came with moa and pua’a, for eggs and chicken and pork, and cast their nets for ahi, aku, ono and mahi mahi.  

Welina ma ka wa e hiki mai ana e ka manawa i hala  

     

 

Welcome to the future through the past.
