This Homestead Education page is an attempt to expand one’s perspective by introducing alternative thinkers into a dialog that will open minds to view points that may influence solutions to issues we face. I have categorized content to local topics and broader global subject matter. I hope this can inspire people to our Blog, the Maui Current,  where questions can be posed and mana’o shared. The dialog revealed I trust can lead us to resolve some fundamental community issues. I invite all to participate and look forward to this education and communication. If you feel the need to comment refer to yellow Comment Box near the bottom on CONTACT US page, fill in your info and lets hear what you have to say.

Text Box:  given time, here’s a good chance you’ll find Kimi Werner packing her bags for a new adventure—on land or in the sea. Whether she’s mingling with people from different cultures, learning about an area’s natural resources or hitching a ride on the dorsal fin of a great white shark, the perennial globetrotter, freediver and spearfisher is always on the move. Born and raised on Maui, Kimi fostered a deep connection to her island home at a very early age. This intrinsic bond with nature became a guiding force in her life, leading her to follow in her father’s footsteps and take up spearfishing and freediving. Renowned for her remarkable ability to hold her breath for more than four minutes to reach depths of over 150 feet, Kimi won every category she entered at the 2008 U.S. National Spearfishing Championships in the dark waters off Newport, Rhode Island. Today, she continues to inspire others as an ambassador of nature, accomplished chef and professional artist who embodies the heart and soul of simple and sustainable living.

Two years later, Daniel was one of the driving forces behind a statewide movement to successfully pass legislation legalizing the public sale of hand-pounded poi, which is produced in the traditional Hawaiian manner using a wooden board and stone. Driven by a vision of restoring ‘aina momona (abundant land) in Hawai‘i, he also established Hui Aloha ʻAina Momona, a nonprofit organization that engages the community in a range of cultural activities. Daniel believes that many of the challenges facing Hawai‘i today can be addressed through fostering a relationship with Häloa—the first ancestor of the Hawaiian people and the Hawaiian name for the kalo plant.
