In the next episode of Kama'aina Backroads™, we delight in sharing our recent visit with the patriarch of Hawai'i Island's southeastern village of Kalapana (Kaimu, actually), Uncle Robert Keli'iho'omalu.
His family compound, set on a kipuka (a clear place or oasis within a lava bed where there may be vegetation), is a well-known spot out in these parts. Uncle talks story about life in days gone by, about doing chores as a kid that sound like sustainable living in today's terms, and about living through Pele's awesome activities that have literally covered hundreds of homes in this very region.
Don't miss the entire segment only on Kama'aina Backroads™, broadcast in Hawai'i on Time-Warner's OC16, and in Nevada on COX96.
