Maly, B. K. (n.d.). Kamaaina Recollections- Oral History Interviews for the Kaluanui and Kaliuwaa Vicinity. Retrieved from

This volume, compiled at the request of Mr. Jeffrey Merz, of Oceanit, on behalf of the Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of State Parks (DLNR-DSP), includes excerpts from nine oral history and consultation interviews. Several of the kamaaina who graciously agreed to share their histories and recollections of the Kaluanui and Kaliuwaa vicinity, are descended from families who have resided on the land for generations—some being descended from traditional residents who claimed residency rights in the Mahele Aina of 1848. Other interviewees have lived in the region and traveled in Kaluanui and Kaliuwaa since the 1940s. The oral history interviews reported herein, provide present and future generations with an opportunity to experience some of the history of the lands and families in the Kaluanui vicinity. The interviews offer readers glimpses into the personal knowledge and experiences of individuals with generational and cultural attachments to the land. These personal stories are a rich part of the legacy which our elders have graciously shared with us. They also provide us with important lessons, values, and attitudes in regards to the relationships between people and the land. All of the interviewees remind us that Kaliuwaa in the land of Kaluanui, is held as a part of the sacred and storied landscape of Oahu, and is very dear to the hearts of the families of the land.

This oral history interview program is being conducted in conjunction with a detailed study of archival and historical literature, and in conjunction with planning programs of the State Department of State Parks, by Oceanit, for Kaluanui-Kaliuwaa (Sacred Falls State Park), in the District of Koolauloa, on the Island of Oahu. The interviews (in conjunction with the archival-historical research) will help document the history of residency and land use in the Kaluanui-Kaliuwaa vicinity, and help identify traditional and customary practices and places of importance to the families of the land. With your permission, portions of the interview will be included in the historical study documenting: (1) the various aspects of the history of the land of the Kaluanui-Kaliuwaa vicinity; and (2) recommendations from kamaaina as to how to care for the cultural and natural resources of the land. This information is very important, and will help ensure that such knowledge can be handed down through your family and to future generations who will follow us.
