Ways of the Ancestors
The name of the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail newsletter honors the ancestors whose paths are still followed today when trails are used. Living aloha in the same way the ancestors did is an important element now and for the future. The newsletter will be published to provide updates about what is happening with the trail and its people, all of you.
