The Great Regeneration
from Wailea to Wailuku to Wai’napanapA,
We will rise from the ashes. Together.
Regeneration in biology is the ability of a living organism to replace damaged or lost parts of the body from small fragments of the body. This principle is how Maui will survive and THRIVE.
How can ecology and economy be balanced on Maui?
There is a common belief that Maui cannot function without tourism. This is a half-truth. Maui need some tourism but too much tourism and quality of life goes down for EVERYONE.
“Ahupuaʻa is a Hawaiian term for a large traditional socioeconomic, geologic, and climatic subdivision of land.”
Returning to business-as-usual is not an option
For too long, Maui has been treated like a cash register and a theme park. No more. No more.

The Kingdom was built by living in harmony with the land and the sea. This way of life is still alive.
