Many stories of
the Puna district were related by Kumu Hula Johnny Lum Ho's mother and his
elders. These stories inspired Johnny to link the significant Puna places into
a huakaʻi hele or journey highlighting the district's unique traditions, lore
and the fond memories of the kūpuna. Ponds, cliffs, the fragrant līpoa seaweed,
Kalapana's Black Sand Beach, Green Lake at Haʻehaʻe and the famous lighthouse
of Kumukahi are each mentioned.
