Uncle Herbert Hoe


Aloha, my name is Herbert Kealoha Hoe and I am a kupuna living in the Ali’i Homestead area. I am a retired captain fire fighter. I taught at Kamehameha Schools Adult Ed focusing on traditional Hawaiian practices in nutrition and healthy lifestyles. Studies tell us the hawaiian community has the highest rates of cancer, obesity and respiratory problems in the nation. I volunteered with Ka Honua Momona International. Our focus is on education, sustainability and healthy life styles. Education is number one for us. As a homesteader, I have the privilege of living on the shoreline of Ali’i Fishpond which we are in the process of restoring.
