Thank you for planning your event with Hoʻokuaʻāina at Kapalai. We are looking forward to spending the day with you. Here is some information to make your day in the lo’i a most memorable experience!
Located in the heart of Maunawili, the weather can change frequently in our loʻi. You might experience hot sun or pouring rain. Be prepared for both.
The lo’i is a natural, spring-fed wetland with all kinds of wildlife. Expect to encounter tadpoles, guppies, frogs and a variety of beautiful bird species.
The work can be physically challenging and the mud is deep. Make sure to stay hydrated and assess your own health while working.
We ask that all participants arrive on time and be present at the start of our day unless other arrangements have been made. Participation in the opening circle is very important. We also ask that everyone exits the property no later than 12:30 pm. However, we are flexible and understand schedules vary so please communicate if you need to make other arrangements.
Please choose a representative from your group to open with a simple introduction or an oli if it is comfortable. Hoʻokuaʻāina will respond appropriately.
