Abstract:Indigenous communities assess health and well-being holistically because they view
people, place, and resources as interconnected. Contrary to this, centralized governance systems
use monitoring tools of selected resources rather than connecting across to ecosystems and
human well-being. In Hawaiʻi, there is a shift towards community-based fisheries management.
However, communities are struggling to balance their ways of understanding resource health
under the governing standards of scientific rigor, and monitoring expectations. Lack of
integrative monitoring that addresses resource health is a critical gap in community-based
management. The purpose of this project was to develop a community-driven monitoring
program in Hāʻena, Kauaʻi. I used a Community-based Participatory Research approach of
mixed methods such as focus groups, coastal monitoring, and seasonal observations. The results
of this project offer a process in a holistic understanding of resource health, integration of
knowledge systems, building relationships and community collaboration towards ʻāina momona,
a thriving people and place.
