|Abstract:||He'eholua - a ritualized form of athleticism that last took place over 180 years ago on carefully constructed stone ramp ways in the shadow of active volcanoes and under the aegis of fierce gods. Through practical research this is a descriptive interpretation from a native perspective of the cultural landscape relative to constructing and riding the papaholua, and the unique relationship holua has with the indigenous people of Hawai'i and Polynesia.|
