Presentation on Living History of the South Maui Region

By Mark Harbison

South Maui Sustainability will present the "Living History of the South Maui Region" on May 21st at Kalama Heights Retirement Center. This will be a celebration of South Maui Sustainability's second year working to develop sustainable living practices in the community.

South Maui's rich cultural history will be explored with an informal class on the area, including discussions on Project Ka'eo, a resource book by Lucienne De Naie and Theresa Donham. Featured event speaker Lucienne De Naie will also present a slide show for an overview of South Maui's historic richness which is still present in South Maui. Those with local knowledge of the area, particularly residents and kupuna, are invited to share what they know at this event.

South Maui Sustainability expects monthly discussions and field trips throughout the year with such activities as walks in the makai and mauka areas of South Maui. It's a great way to get to know this part of the island for those who are planning a move to South Maui or for those who have recently done so.

Perhaps if you enjoy this event on the 21st, you will participate in these fun future events where you'll get a chance to further explore the area. For a good preview of the subjects under discussion, you can actually download the Project Ka'eo book or an Executive Summary for free at http://projectkaeo.blogspot.com/ although the book is long so the download will take a while. You can get more information on this event at www.SouthMauiSustainability.org or contact Maury King at 874-5955 or maury@SouthMauiSustainability.org
