Detailed Information:
"Ohana" is Hawaiian for family. Kipahulu Ohana is a group of Hawaiians genealogically connected to the Kipahulu Valley, and their supporters, working to restore the traditional Hawaiian ahupuaa (watershed) management practices, from the mountain to the ocean.

Kipahulu Valley is Hawaii's most biologically diverse watershed, home to many endangered species, which was designated as an International Biosphere Reserve in 1980. It is also home to a portion of Haleakala National Park, with which the Kipahulu Ohana has a collaborative agreement to assist in cultural interpretation and resource management decisions.
