Maly, K. (n.d.). Hana Ka Lima, ‘Ai Ka Waha. Retrieved from

This volume was compiled at the request of Scott Atkinson (on behalf of The Nature Conservancy), and Chipper Wichman (on behalf of Limahuli Gardens, The National Tropical Botanical Gardens and Hui Makaainana o Makana-Limahuli Garden ICMI Project), and includes excerpts from selected historical records, and oral history interviews with kupuna and elder kamaaina who are natives of, or familiar with the lands, fisheries and families of the Halelea-Napali region of Kauai (Figure 1). While including historical references to the larger districts of Halelea and Napali, the selected narratives cited in this volume pay particular attention to the lands of Wainiha, Haena, Limahuli and Kee. The work reported herein provides readers with access to several important sources of documentation pertaining to native Hawaiian use and management of land and fishery resources. Documentation from—traditional lore (some translated herein by Maly); native land records of the Mahele Aina, including documentation covering the period from ca. 1819 to 1855; the Boundary Commission Testimonies of native witnesses ca. 1870 to 1880; Kingdom and Government communications (ca. 1850-1900); and historical journals are cited. The historical component of the study is in no way exhaustive, and does not include frequently cited native and historical accounts which have benefited from broad circulation. Instead, we focused on historical narratives which have, to date, only had limited exposure. Thus, such accounts as "Pele and Hiiaka" (compiled by Emerson, 1915); Kauai Tales (Wichman, 1985); and the findings of archaeological research in the region (e. g. Bennett, 1931; Hammatt, 1976; Silva, 1995; and Carpenter 1996) are not quoted in this volume.

The primary focus of this study was the conducting of oral history interviews with individuals familiar with lands of the study area. The interviewees were born between ca. 1905 to 1936, and nearly all of them are tied to families with generations of residency in the Halelea-Napali region. A few interviewees, not born in the area, have personal knowledge of the lands, ocean and families of the region, dating back to the 1940s. All but one of the interviewees were brought up in families that worked the lands and fished in the traditional Hawaiian system, observing ancient customs and beliefs, and most fished as a means of survival and sustaining their families. Their recollections and descriptions of practices, span their own life-times, and draw on the knowledge and expertise of their own elders, dating back to the 1850s, and include references to native beliefs, traditions, customs and practices associated with land use and residency; the locations of fisheries and types of fish caught; and observations about the changing conditions of the resources.
