The ‘Aha Moku Advisory Committee has scheduled a series of public meetings to seek comment from communities in ‘ahupua‘a districts as it develops and adopts rules for its operation and administration.

The ‘Aha Moku Advisory Committee was created by the Legislature in 2012 via Act 288.

The committee is attached to the state Department of Land and Natural Resources and is mandated to bring the voices of the ‘ahupua‘a communities forward to the Department on issues related to natural and cultural resources.

The system is based upon indigenous resource management practices within moku or island boundaries.

“These boundaries acknowledge the natural contours of land, the specific resources located within those areas (‘ahupua‘a), and the methodology necessary to sustain resources and the community,” said Leimana DaMate, AMAC executive director in a state issued press release.
