Hana Limu Festival 10am-3pm Aug 13/22 at Coconut Cove, Hana

Announcing the 14th Annual Hana Limu Festival, August 13, 2022

Hana Limu Festival Is Back in a new location!

Hana, Maui - Na Mamo O Mu'olea is excited to announce the much-anticipated post-pandemic reemergence of the annual Hana Limu Festival! The 2022 Limu Festival - Hanana No Na Limu on Saturday - will be held on August 13th, 2022 from 10 am to 3 pm at Coconut Cove, 20 Uwala Drive in Hana, Maui. Please note that this is a different location than previous festivals.

As we celebrate Hawaii's Year of the Limu, the Festival will also pay tribute to John "JackieBoy" Lind who recently passed. John was an aloha 'aina warrior, kalo farmer, lawai'a loea and Konohiki of Kipahulu moku on Maui. Jackie Boy, known to some as Uncle John, was a mentor, dear friend, and kupuna to kindred spirits across our islands.

This year's festival will feature live limu (seaweed) demonstrations , hands-on activities for youth, Hawaiian music, a silent auction, crafts, 'ono food, and T-shirts that showcase the beautiful limu prints of Maui artist Gwen Arkin. Some Hana residents and limu experts will conduct limu surveys at four locations along the Hana Coast on the morning of the event and share their observations, mana'o, and limu collections with Hanana No Na Limu participants.

"We are grateful to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the County of Maui for supporting our community, as the funding they provide allows us to host this gathering dedicated to learning about, celebrating, and perpetuating our native Hawaiian limu and culture," said Claudia Kalaola, Limu Festival Chair and co-founder of Na Mamo O Mu'olea.

Organized by Hana residents, the Limu Festival - Hanana No Na Limu - is designed to promote a deeper awareness of our native limu and to make people mindful of their kuleana and role in ensuring that ocean resources are here for generations to come. Collaborating partners and co-sponsors help with the event, including The Nature Conservancy, Kua Aina Ulu 'Auamo, and the Maui Nui Makai Network. The event focuses on how Hawaii's oceans and fresh water - and the health of limu, fish, plants, culture, and more - are inherently connected. Native limu is essential, not only as an 'ono (delicious), nutritious part of the traditional Hawaiian diet but for its vital role in the health of the nearshore ecosystem, serving as the base of the food chain and providing food and shelter for herbivore fish and invertebrates.

Each year, funds raised through a silent auction at the Festival enable Na Mamo O Mu'olea to award the Isabelle Aiona Abbott Scholarship to Hana students who follow in Dr Abbott's footsteps by pursuing studies in marine biology, natural resource management, and Hawaiian studies.

Na Mamo O Mu'olea is a non-profit group made up of residents and families of Mu'olea whose mission is to perpetuate traditional management of the Mu'olea ahupua'a through a lease agreement with the County of Maui and to restore and maintain Mu'olea's natural, cultural, scenic, historic, and marine resources for the benefit, education, and enjoyment of our community and future generations.
