Keen observation, Adaptability, Resilience, and Ancestral knowledge allowed ʻŌiwi (aboriginal Hawaiians) to create the indigenous resource management and land tenure system unique to these islands; to produce and manage abundant resources for a substantial population. We now understand that the other Hawaiian islands, not only Oʻahu, likely had comparable, if not larger, resident populations than we do today. Those populations gained sustenance solely from the bounties of local production. This talk will examine that historical system and discuss key concepts and indigenous strategies that can inform our contemporary and future planning efforts for our islands.
