Papa Kāheka

Kūpuna Council

Salt pans carved into solid papa along the shore are known as kāheka. They facilitate the formation and the shape of innumerable batches of paʻakai over many years. The paʻakai created from these kāheka are essential in seasoning and preserving mea ʻai for the sustenance and enjoyment of kānaka, but it is the kāheka, in conjunction with the surrounding environment that make that paʻakai possible. Kāheka do not always form themselves, rather they are often shaped by a kanaka who carved them so that they could fulfill their purpose.

 

We recognize that in the same way that kāheka facilitate and shape numerous batches of paʻakai, esteemed kūpuna are responsible for shaping multiple generations of Wahi Kūpuna Stewards. These kūpuna were shaped by kūpuna before them, and many remain paʻa fixtures within their local communities in the same way that a kāheka is inseparable from the papa which it has been carved into. No laila, it is with great haʻahaʻa me ka mahalo piha i loko iho o ko mākou naʻau that we honor our Kaliʻuokapaʻakai Council of Kūpuna with the inoa Papa Kāheka.

Huliauapaʻa's Role

An important element that drives a successful Collective is the backbone. He aha ia? What is the backbone and what role does the backbone play in a Collective like ours? The backbone of a Collective serves to support, facilitate, and guide collaborative visions and strategies to move collective impact forward. Leading from behind, the backbone elevates the work of partners. The backbone is a relationship builder--a network weaver that tactfully cultivates and guides the meaningful pilina amongst collective members towards a trajectory of impactful change of a shared vision.

The Backbone - He aha ia?

Huliauapaʻa currently serves as the backbone organization for the Kali'uokapa'akai Collective. Huliauapaʻa is a non-profit organization that envisions wahi kūpuna thriving through Hawaiian self-determination. Our mission is to grow Hawaiʻi’s communities through culturally based dimensions of innovative learning, leadership development and collaborative networking in wahi kūpuna stewardship.
