Our Community Outreach Manager, Malia Chun, has been all over the place spreading aloha, recruiting groups of volunteers and introducing them to Mālama Hulē‘ia. At the beginning of almost every one of our work days, she welcomes the volunteers, tells them about the history of Niumalu and the Hulē‘ia, recounts some mo‘olelo relevant to these places and then chants her oli. This is the beautiful oli that she created for the Hulē‘ia River that we care so much for:
A long overdue MAHALO to Malia for this oli and all the aloha she gives and work she does to make Mālama Hulē‘ia a success.
Need we mention that Malia is also one of our hardest workers in the mangrove?
