Connect with the ‘āina for a walking tour along Kalia Road and Waikīkī beach. Offer ho’okupu and learn about healing practices of the area. Discover more about Waikīkī’s rich history as Mālia shares the story of Kawehewehe and the surrounding fishponds and healing springs that were filled in the 1920s.  This thoughtful and insightful walk will challenge participants to seek traces of healing and recovery in the surrounding land and within each individual.  Practicing aloha ‘āina, litter collection bags will be provided for light cleanup along the way.

This walk story begins at Still & Moving Center, 1024 Queen Street, Honolulu, a community based mindful movement Center that has been offering multicultural classes, events and workshops for over 7 years, in the heart of Kaka’ako.
