Archaeological Inventory Survey For The DLNR-DOFAW Historic Trails Survey, Kauleolī 1-2, Keālia 1st And 2nd, Hoʻokena, And Kauhakō Ahupuaʻa, South Kona, Hawaiʻi

On behalf of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW), Nā Ala Hele Trail and Access Program (NAH), ASM Affiliates is preparing an Archaeological Inventory Survey for a 3.38 mile-long section of State-owned trail that begins (from north to south) near the Kēōkea-Kiʻilae Ahupuaʻa boundary and extends across Kauleolī 1st and 2nd, Keālia 1st and 2nd, Hoʻokena, and concludes in Kauhakō Ahupuaʻa, South Kona District, Island of Hawaiʻi. The trail corridor currently crosses several Tax Map Key (TMK) parcels.

As part of our survey of this trail section, ASM subcontracted Wes Thomas Associates, a licensed land surveyor, to conduct a metes-and-bounds survey of the trail corridor boundaries. As a result, the trail corridor will soon receive its own TMK parcel number. Furthermore, the results of this survey will aid NAH in the maintenance and management of this historical resource, ensuring it is maintained as a recreational and educational amenity within its historical context and the support of the community.

ASM is in search of kamaʻāina (persons who have genealogical connections and or are familiar from childhood with the ʻāina) who are familiar with the ahupuaʻa from Kēōkea to Kauhakō. We are seeking information associated with this section of the trail, as well as the area’s cultural resources, customs, practices, associated with the project area; and past and or ongoing cultural practices that have or continue to occur within the project area. ASM is also seeking input regarding strategies that will aid NAH in future stewardship and maintenance efforts. If you have and are willing to share any such information, please contact Candace Gonzales,, (808) 969-6066, mailing address ASM Affiliates 507A E. Lanikaula Street, Hilo, HI 96720. Mahalo.
