KALIHI – Mauka To MakaiA photo essay by Roy Kimura, PBS Hawaii VP Creative Services
Soon, construction will begin on PBS Hawaii's NEW HOME, at the intersection of Nimitz Highway and Sand Island Access Road. The ahupua'a of Kalihi holds many stories... from the farms and taro lo'i on the mauka side of the area, to the fish ponds and the Kalihi Hospital and Detention facility which treated people afflicted with Hansen's disease.
On a rainy Sunday, I took a drive through the ahupua'a of Kalihi. From mauka to makai.
