Farming and Kaua’i Culture

Kaua’i is known for its rich cultural history, including many stories that have been told about the sugar plantations that have left their mark here. But what about the land itself – how has it been managed and tended? How can the traditions, wisdom and experience of Kaua’i’s diverse farmers inspire future generations to care for this precious land? This oral history project seeks to answer these questions through interviews with a diverse group of islanders who have cared for the sacred and controversial lands of Koloa in southern Kaua’i.
