|Abstract:||The connection between genealogy and land is an important aspect of Hawaiian culture. The Hawaiian Methodology used in researching the minutes of the Hui Kūʻai ʻĀina o Wainiha looks at 23 years of a primary source hand written Hawaiian language document. My research tells a moʻolelo of a land hui in Wainiha, Kauaʻi. They practiced traditional methods of land governance by creating their own Kumukānāwai. They used traditional laws and cultural methods such as: practicing the use of palena or boundary making; kālaiʻāina-dividing out the land; placing kapu on specific fish and plants in their valley; kuleana-practicing responsibility and concern for each other and the land; and the use of hoʻoponopono or balance as a way of living their lives. Culminating in the best practice methods of land and resource management used by this group. This is the story of the Kanei ʻohana-a moʻolelo makaʻāinana shared by a lineal descendent.|
