In its 5th year, the ‘Ōiwi Film Festival presents the work of Nā Maka o ka ‘Āina in memory of the late filmmaker and pioneer Puhipau, who passed away February. Nā Maka o ka ‘Āina, an independent production team started in 1982 by Joan Lander and Puhipau, has documented and given voice to traditional and contemporary Hawaiian culture, history, language, art, music, environment, and politics. The festival showcases four films selected by Joan Lander. In revisiting The Tribunal, Mauna Kea: Temple Under Siege, Pele’s Appeal, and Stolen Waters, we remember the pioneering work of Nā Maka o ka ‘Āina and aim to inspire the next generation of filmmakers to continue sharing and preserving their stories.

honeyMākaha Elementary students have been engaged in hands-on activities throughout second quarter to promote the theme of “interdependence” at the farm. Students learned about the many mutually dependent relationships found at the farm.

Kindergarten – Kindergarteners worked to understand the relationship between eating nutritious foods and their overall health. They got to try many healthy snacks from plants they helped grow and that were found around the farm. A favorite was the banana/mango smoothie they made on the smoothie bike.

First Grade – First graders studied the many animals found on the farm including goats, sheep, rabbits, many types of birds, turtles, fish and more! They explored the needs of these animals and how they depend on their specific body structures and environment for survival. They were also able to learn from an expert animal caretaker, Miss Maxe from Asagi Hatchery.

Second Grade – Second graders began to study the relationships between living and non-living things in ecosystems found around the farm. They studied the flow of the sun’s energy by exploring native food chains and food webs found in Hawai’i.

Third Grade – Third graders have been working with local beekeeper, Jasmine Joy, to learn about the complex relationships between honeybees, plants, and themselves. The big ideas they took away from Jasmine’s visits were that many flowering plants rely on animals like honeybees to pollinate them to produce seeds and also that honeybee populations are in decline, which can lead to reductions in local food supplies.

Fourth Grade – Our Grade 4 students continued their learning about the ahupua’a system of old Hawai’i and the relationships between the people and the land of that system. They completed their model of Oahu and helped label it to show the many ahupua’as found here.

Fifth Grade – The fifth grade students studied the effects of plastics in our oceans and local ecosystems and were successful in creating a plan to help reduce waste at our school. They learned that recycling is a strategy communities use to help reduce pollution and waste and were responsible in facilitating all recycling at MES.
