This downtown Pahoa block Party was driven by Council member Ashley Kierkiewicz and the District 4 team, Chasity Qyuhano and Christine Kahikina. The purpose of this event was for community revitalization one year following the 2108 lava flow. Our forest project was represented with a brief talk and a showing of the Keau’ohana video at the main stage. Outreach brochures were handed out and discussion held with interested people. This celebration demonstrated the resourcefulness and resilience of the Puna community as several dozen community members worked together to help implement it.
