The spirit of Kaloko-Honokohau was its life, the life that flowed in its land and the water that washed upon its shore. Like Hawaiians who found its presence elsewhere, the people of Kaloko-Honokohau let the spirit become part of their existence. They lived in such perfect harmony with it that they became a singular, total, and inseparable environment. From "The spirit of Kaloko-Honokohau"-1974
