‘ĀINA MOMONA

 

ALOHA KĀKOU

‘Āina Momona (Hawaiian for the fertile or rich land) is a community organization dedicated to achieving environmental health and sustainability through restoring social justice and Hawaiian sovereignty.
ʻĀina Momona's land base is Keawanui Fishpond and Cultural Learning Site in the Kaʻamola land section of Molokaʻi. Keawanui is a 55-acre, loko kuapā (closed wall fishpond) on the south shore of the island, where there were once dozens of thriving loko iʻa.
‘Āina Momona has four primary program areas that the organization focuses on: ‘Āina (land and environmental health), ‘Ai (food and agriculture), Wai (water) and Ea (sovereign, resistance and social justice).
