Digging the Past: The Hawaiian Field Systems of Kaʻū

The agricultural systems of the Hawaiian archipelago were some of the most intensive in the Pacific and this scale of intensity is well illustrated by the large agricultural landscapes of leeward Hawai‘i Island. Previous research in the area has centered on understanding the relationship between agriculture, political process, and large-scale environmental changes. Join Seth Quintus, PhD., University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa | Department of Anthropology as he takes us through the remarkable Kahuku agricultural field systems in place before western contact.

When: June 4 at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
