ʻĀina Momona

Data on the health of the land.

This lens highlights the reciprocal nature of wellbeing between ʻāina (that which feeds, often translated as land) and people. ʻĀina is inclusive of the sky and ocean. Healthy and abundant ʻāina requires kuleana of Hawaiians to mālama ʻāina or care for and protect the land. These acts of aloha (love) reinforce connections of people to place, building community and community place-based knowledge and identity, and fostering healthy and productive lifestyles.
